Keep textbooks in schools. Good idea?

Postby zyberk » Tue Dec 23, 2008 3:58 pm

Hi,

During my daughter's orientation session, we were informed that the textbooks will be kept in school. Its to lessen the weight of the children's school bag.

Is this a good idea? How then can the student do revision or prepare for the next day lessons?

Any parents been in such situations?

Thanks.

You can keep those not so important text books (eg. CME, Health Education, Art and Music) in school. the core books may be needed for revision for tests, so just in case they forget to bring back before the tests.

Get 2 sets of textbooks. There was a time when kiasu parents did just that.

hehehe ... we were contemplating on that idea ... but is that the best solution? Can the school actually insist on keeping the textbooks? Its good if parents were given the choice.

Just curious, if you keep text books at school, how do your children refer to them for homework?

My son reads his science text books like reading story books. Had to pull it away from him when he was eating lunch today :|

I am not sure how the school manage this yet. Maybe just bring back the text book that has homework. The rest of the book, like music, social study, art text book can keep @ school.
