Homework !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Homework !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Homework !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Homework at times has been very challenging with the new school year. When I say challenging, the youth are ready to play and homework is the last thing on their minds. I am a strong believer with the right ingredients, like little creativity, proper tools (notebook paper, pencils, dictionary and etc) and great mentors the homework blues will be no more. At the ASA, those very ingredients have made a world of difference. So hats off to the ASA team, Phillip, Tameshia, and Anna. Much thanks goes to Amanda too. Every day they stand strong and deal with the youth and their homework blues. They have made homework more of an adventure. If you think about it, homework is an adventure. I mean homework has it all, numbers, stories, human emotions, “the facial expressions”. It really does not get better than that…

I started my homework,
Then my pencil broke.
I thought I was going to have a stroke .

I sharpened my pencil,
But then I had to sharpen everyone.
So much to do.
And I have just begun.

Truly I did…
I started my homework,
But then I had a sneezing attack.
I thought I was going to choke.
Then when I saw all math problems.
Was this a joke?

I started my homework
Truly I did...
But then I got distracted,
My books were taken hostage.
I spilled juice on my paper .
Plus, I was running out of excuses .
Where is the cape crusader?

I started my homework,
Truly I did…
Everything I said before ,
Just part of my homework.
A little creative writing,
Do you want to hear more
