Hello All,

I have read quite a bit about busy work lately and I just wanted to throw this out there. What I believe busy work is or is not :)


Busy Work is NOT work that a child does to reinforce or practice a skill. This may be in worksheet form but it is NOT busy work if the child is LEARNING from it and it is necessary practice. Some children simply need more practice in a subject area.


Busy Work IS given to a child to, well, keep they busy and out of your hair for a few minutes :). In my opinion if a child requests this then what harm can it be. The issue comes in when there is so much that it bogs down the child's love of learning or over teaches an already mastered subject.


Hope this helps some of you!!
