Forgot about this. But what the fuck is going on with kids today?
Not the normal thing. I mean their homework.
My kid is in the third grade. He's also autistic, but he's in regular class. Let's ignore that for now though.
He brings home a lot of homework and I help him sometimes. But I am AMAZED that some of this shit is third grade. Does this sound like third grade?
One question asked: Choose the word that fits in both sentences. Charlie had to _________ his way through the dense jungle. They used a _____________ to make the sword and armor.
So first off: Nobody FORGES their way through a forest. My second point will be better illustrated in this next question, same thing:
The oil company _________________ the petroleum into gasoline. She came from a very _____________ family.
Okay, now how the fuck does a third grader know that petroleum is refined into gasoline? And then they also should know what refined means in regards to family lineage? And on the previous question, they need to know how armor and swords are made to understand that question.
Really? Third grade?
Worse yet, questions I had to look up to answer. That's right, I have a near-genius IQ, and I'm looking up third grade questions.
Could you tell me honestly--no searching on the internet--are all rhombuses parallelograms? And vice versa? What about a square? Is that a rhombus AND a parallelogram, or just a parallelogram?
Now, I'm willing to say it's just a poor reflection on me, because I DID get a D in geometry. But that was in 6th grade. Does this look like third grade homework to you?
