I have been working with kids in Australia for four years and before that I worked in Scotland for longer than a care to remember. During this time I have been given tons of primary school homework sheets and I can honestly say that very few of them were even remotely interesting.
So they expect you lot out there to want to learn to read when what they give you to practice on is so outstandingly not worth reading.
And then there are all these tedious questions about what the text you have been given to read. Why are you all being given this stuff? Does anyone out there ever read it before they give it to you? How on earth is this stuff supposed to make you want to learn to read?
There are so many brilliant kids authors about. Whey are we not using them to write the school homework sheets?
Please tell me if the stuff you are getting is interesting or if it’s so boring you want to set fire to it. I promise to post the most boring and recommend the most interesting.
And if you tell us at dyslexia-testing.com.au what you would rather be reading we’ll try to arrange it.
