Homeschool Review Crew does word prompts for Instagram fun, I think
it’s great to have these words prompts for doing quick posts. 🙂 I
find them fun as sometimes it surprises me where my brain goes. 🙂
The word for today is Weather. Let’s follow my brain where it goes eh?
I then grade them on proper word usage, grammar and such like. They need to cite their resources in the proper format and make three good paragraphs.
I’ve learned about tornadoes, hurricanes, ball lightning and more. It’s actually quite interesting, and it gives me a glimpse into the work I can expect my lad to do in grade nine/ten.
It’s work that I actually quite enjoy until I have to give someone a poor grade…especially on tests when it’s simply because they didn’t actually READ the question they were asked (or at least it feels that way since the answer is completely different than what is expected). I know it’s part of life right? To lose marks when one doesn’t do the work due to failure to understand the question. I know it’s better to learn that lesson in the early years of higher education than later on at the job site.
It still bothers me to do so.
I don’t like pointing out their weaknesses, and for the most part the students accept it, I have the odd one though who likes to argue the markings I give. Keeps me sharp I suppose, but it’s a bit annoying too..especially when it feels like they are trying to justify themselves.
As I ponder this on a cold winter night it makes me wonder… do people do this with God too? When God calls us out on something that we are doing that we really ought not to…. do they argue with God.. do I argue with God…trying to explain away why I did something, trying to justify my poor decision making?
Human nature I suppose… or as hubby would put it…it’s that sin in us fighting to have it’s own way.
hmm… the sin in us fighting back….trying to have its own way.
What think you?
