How to spend a free first period (El Cerrito HS freshman)
My ECHS 9th grader doesn't have a first period (they call them blocks there) so his first class doesn't start till 9:45.
He gets on campus by 8 because he rides with another family. I don't want him at home because I'm positive he'd spend the time watching YouTube. So I'm told he can hang out in the library or the cafeteria.
If you have or had a kid in the same situation how did you handle it? He doesn't have an English class this semester so if he's going to read I'm the one who has to supervise. Did you assign your kid reading or other work? Any advice is welcome. I want him to establish good habits at this early stage.
Some additional info to consider: I'm working from home for the next couple of months while I undergo cancer treatment. I really do not need a teenager underfoot at the moment.
