Top 3 Reasons Why Homework Should Be Banned

The debate over whether homework is still a viable learning tool or has become outdated has actually been going on for many years. The trend in this debate seems to be heading in the direction of «outdated» but there certainly is no consensus yet. The factors I see as most significant in this issue are societal, centered on the family, and are primarily based on TIME; and as such, are unlikely to be reversed.

Top 3 Reasons Why Homework Should Be Banned:

1. Family time gets first priority.

Family life has changed considerably over the past few decades. With today’s high divorce rate, many parents spend a great deal of time just shuffling children back and forth. Each parent values the time with their child and the child values the time spent with each parent.

The financial realities of life now dictate that both adults in the home need to have jobs, but those jobs do not always coincide. Many of the jobs in today’s society are not the old standard 9-5 kind of jobs. When parents get home, they very often bring their own version of homework.

Many families are having to deal with military deployments to various parts of the world, and all indications are that we will be deploying soldiers as «peacekeepers» for many years to come. A parent on deployment may be gone for up to a year at a time. Some families have had to deal with multiple deployments. In a few cases both parents have been deployed at the same time.

For each of these situations and many others, family time becomes too precious to spend on school homework.

2. Children are too busy.

In years past, children came home from school, changed clothes, went outside to play with the neighbor kids until dark, did their homework–sometimes with parental help, and then went to bed early. Not so anymore!

Today, a large percentage of children are involved in some kind of sport after school. It may be Little League, or league soccer, swimming at the «Y,» football, volleyball, etc., but kids are involved in sports. Many also take music lessons, or dance, or gymnastics, or even language lessons. Some children are involved in scouting. Some are active with church activities. The list of potential involvements is quite long; but the point is that by the time children get home, THEY ARE TIRED!

School homework is the very last thing they want to do.

3. Teens are even busier.

Many teenagers are involved in the same kinds of activities as their younger siblings, but they may also be involved in school activities like band, drama, debate club, etc. Some teens play school sports as well as league sports. And on top of everything, some teens have jobs. Many of the teens who don’t do school activities, work a job after school every day.

When are these students supposed to do school homework?

Certainly, it can be argued that a student’s «job» should be learning first; and, I hate to admit that I said those words once or twice in my teaching career. However, we all must realize that life changes and we must adapt to those changes. To continue to require homework of students whose families endorse their activities is simply not fair. The schools cannot be in a position of punishing the child (for failing to do homework) when the family considers other things more important.

Two First Communion Party Games for Kids

The First Communion is a special time when your child really begins to take part in the responsibilities and rules of your religion and some First Communion party games will lighten the tension. You may even want to mark the occasion by throwing a small party, so why not include a couple of fun First Communion party games?

Kids’ Crab Football:

This fun activity makes a great choice for the First Communion Party Games because it will help to burn off pent up energy from the more solemn events you had scheduled earlier. It also lets everyone get out of their special occasion clothes and relax a bit. For this First Communion party game you’ll need a large beach ball and lots of space for the kids to move around in. Crab Football is just like regular soccer except the ball is larger and the players have to walk like crabs. You know how, right? Just bend over like you are going to do a back flip and scuttle around on your hands and feet.

Animal Scavenger Hunt:

For this indoor or outdoor appropriate First Communion party game have the party divide into groups of three or four. Have each group choose an animal they want to pretend to be and make the adult in the group the Shepard. At the start of the game you will give the kids in each of the groups a list of hidden items you placed around the party area. The Shepards will all stay in the First Communion party games area while the ‘animals’ all go out searching for missing items. When a player finds an item they must call to the Shepard by making animal calls. The Shepard will recognize their players because the calls will be similar to the sounds made by their chosen animal. The Shepard will follow the sounds to their teammate and will get the missing item from the player and return to the First Communion party games area, while the ‘animal’ continues on the hunt to find more scavenger items. Those at the end of the hunt with the most items are the winners.

You’ll find that the kids and the adults at your First Communion party games have plenty of good old fun. Just take a little time out for the fun to start and you’ll have more than you can handle.

World Cup Spread Betting – D-Day For the Squads

Its D day for the managers of the World Cup teams that haven’t announced their final squad lists to FIFA. Some have been submitted in the last few days but for those with injury doubts over key players the motto is wait until the last possible minute to get the results of fitness tests before they make the call. Fabio Capello is one such manager who sweating on the fitness of Gareth Barry and I’m sure he will have been in contact with his medical team and knows the outcome. For 7 of the players in the England party at the moment they are going to get the call they most certainly will not be waiting for some time this morning. The squad is due to announced around lunchtime and world cup spread betting will bring you the news as soon as it is released.

For the younger players there will be disappointment at not making it but they have numerous chances to attend World Cups and Euro Championships in the future. The likes of Dawson, Huddlestone and Adam Johnson, if he doesn’t make it spring to mind. Although he might not be such a bad wild card pick. He might do as much as some of the more established players. For the likes of Scott Parker and Darren Bent they will know this is probably their last chance to play in a major finals. Fabio’s talks with the FA seem to have ended with him ready to commit until 2012 at least and he can now prepare for the World Cup without the speculation on his future getting in the way. Sources are saying that Inter Milan were only using him as a smoke screen to keep the attention off Rafa Benitez who is their real target. Heaven knows why they would want him instead of Capello; I know who I would pick given the choice.

Other world cup spread betting news today sees a possible return to management for Ruud Gullit with the Aussies looking to bring him in after the World Cup. Thierry Henry says he is happy to come off the bench and do what ever is needed for the team. South Africa continued their preparations with a 5-0 win over Guatemala. The match marked a little piece of history with Aaron Mokoena notching his 100th cap, a first for a South African player. Spanish player Xavi has joined his countryman Cassilas in condemnation of the new World Cup ball, the Jabulani as it is called. Makers Adidas are shocked by the insults being hurled at the ball and maintain it is the first perfectly round football. (I knew that playing with them square balls would never take off). Crystal Palace are on the brink of going into liquidation if they don’t get a buyout plan through by 3.00pm today and that would be a massive shame for everyone involved. Hopefully they can get it sorted out.

And finally we were talking about Geoff Hurst’s number 9 shirt been on offer for 2million a few days ago. Well you could have had Pele’s number10 shirt from the 1970 final a few years back for only £66,500 which was the price payed when it came to auction. That old inflation is a bit of a bitch eh. Will bring news of the England squad as soon as it comes in. Chow.

League of Legends – A Great Free Online MOBA Game

League of Legends is a pretty recent introduction to the free online MOBA game world. Still it brings with it some amazing features that are quickly propelling it towards the title of #1 free online MOBA game. In terms of mechanics it is very similar to other MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) games. However a combination of constant updates, exciting customizable options, and truly free game play really sets it apart from the competition.

Like many other free online MOBA games, League of Legends splits players into two teams. Each player picks a unique champion and then the two teams face off against each other on a virtual battlefield. The goal is to push your way through your opponents defenses and destroy their nexus. This is done by earning gold from killing minions and enemy champions to buy more powerful items. Games typically last between 20-40 minutes and end in one team destroying the other teams base.

As stated above the premise in League of Legends is similar to the other MOBA games available. However unlike those games the developers for League of Legends are constantly working to make their game better. They release weekly patches with small balance changes that help move the game towards being perfectly fair. They also develop and release a new champion every 3-4 weeks, which helps keep the game from getting stagnant. Perhaps one of the funnest things they do are the seasonal changes. During holidays like Christmas the developers change the map slightly so that it is themed for the holidays. It really helps you get into the spirit of the holidays while playing League of Legends. Small things like these really set League apart from it’s competitors.

League of Legends also offers every player a variety of options which help them customize each character to fit their play style. For example each player can equip runes and masteries before each game which allow them to boost certain traits they really want in their character. Players also earn gold in each match which they can use to buy items which boost their abilities even further.

Perhaps the one thing that truly makes League of Legends the best free online MOBA game available is it’s free! That’s right, League of Legends is 100% free. You purchase everything that affects the game using influence points (IP) which you earn while playing. If you feel like spending some money you do have the option of buying neat new looks (skins) for your characters, but no player will gain an unfair advantage from spending more money than someone else.
