For a little motivation to do homework:
I showed this video to my little brother as he was being reluctant to do his homework. I think seeing these characters and the ridiculous amount of homework Mr. Ratburn gave them, put his homework load into perspective. He eagerly did his homework and listened to the song a couple more times for laughs.
I think there is a certain peace in knowing you are not the only 4th grader with homework in June. The burden becomes lighter when you know you're not alone and makes it easier to get the job done if you recognize its the reality of life for a student.
Here's to the final weeks/month of this school year!
