"How Was School Today?" - A New Way for Parents to Ask!
This year, Simon is in fourth grade and Grace is in first grade, and I find myself asking them every day after school, "So how was school today?"
And every day I get an answer like "fine" or "good," which doesn't tell me a whole lot. AND I WANT TO KNOW A WHOLE LOT!!!!
Or at least get a full sentence. So the other night, I sat down and made a list of more engaging questions to ask about school. They aren't perfect, but I do at least get complete sentences, and some have led to some interesting conversations... and hilarious answers... and some insights into how my kids think and feel about school.

One 2 The World
In January 2015, McKinney ISD took a strategic step forward in its mission to prepare all students for college and career success by putting a new MacBook Air laptop in the hands of every MISD freshman.
It’s the first step in the District’s new “One 2 the World” instructional initiative that will roll out from 2014–2018. Once fully implemented, the program will provide every high schooler with personal access to a computer by issuing a laptop to each of those students in much the same way that textbooks have traditionally been distributed—but with vastly greater, and more flexible, educational potential.
