G comes home and says, Ms. Science teacher "said that kids who use styro foam for their solar systems will not make a good grade because styro foam is not creative."
My first words, because I am a compassionate mom who rarely uses I-told-you-so, were, "I told you to do a book." heh
But this morning at 6am when, for some strange reason I woke up, I was livid and fuming over the whole project. Why a teacher would change the rules the Friday before a project is due is beyond me. So this morning I set about to e-mail Ms teacher but then G said she may not have understood what the teacher said and that maybe she didn't say that to other classes. I was going to e-mail her to ask her to clarify what she meant, but G wouldn't let me.
Ms. teacher did say for the students to get ideas off of pintrest. I am not on pintrest and do not plan to be. I have no time for pintrest and G wanted to do the diorama with styro foam planets. Plus, Ms teacher's rubric did not mention any grade for creativity and the only restriction was no food/candy. And other than getting the facts on the box, G was finished completely last weekend.
Oh but Saturday G had a basketball game and the team WON!! It was an exciting game and G even scored!! I didn't take pictures.
So now time for dinner and then to bed. So glad it is Sunday tomorrow, looking forward to church then nap!
