September Schoolwork

This is one of the first papers that Alpha brought home from school this year. I’m guessing it was when the teacher was reviewing the rules for the classroom.

I’m glad they start with the basics, although I wonder what rules 1-23 are.

But we discussed this rule at home and we had to amend it, or modify it. Because there are more things on which to stand that aren’t chairs. Like tables, or siblings.

Now in our home, the rule is no standing on anything that’s not the floor.

I reserve the right to update that rule as needed. Because I’m sure they’ll find a way around it (such as “I’m not standing – I’m jumping!”).

Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall.

    It appears that they have read the book “Officer Buckle and Gloria.” It’s a great book by the same guy who wrote “10 Minutes ‘Till Bedtime.”

    I stand on chairs all the time. It’s the only way I can reach the top shelves in my kitchen cabinets. Maybe they are prejudiced against vertically challenged people?

  3. Some Guy Says:

    They did read Officer Buckle and Gloria. I’d never heard of that before.

  4. Ricky Anderson Says:

    How much standing on siblings were they doing before the new rule?

  5. Some Guy Says:

    It was only an occasional standing. But we wanted to prevent any problems before the little one starts crawling.
