We've heard lots of stories over the past few years about how third grade is when homework gets "serious."

I've been a bit underwhelmed with the amount of homework Alex has had to do for the past few years, so I was fairly excited to receive an email from his teacher on Tuesday that the kids had homework to do on the second night of school.

Alex came home, and presented us with these: a spiral homework notebook, and a red homework folder.

Impressive, yes.

But then it turns out that his homework is just to read for thirty minutes - which we do anyways, and for more like an hour (and often more) - and to summarize what he has read in a written sentence and out loud to us for ninety seconds.

Again, we do this anyways, and for more than ninety seconds.

Color me still unimpressed with third grade homework.
