Like many kids, Lisa Vale's 7-year-old doesn't see the value in doing homework after sitting through a long day of schooling, and definitely doesn't understand why assignments should have to be completed over a school break. After reminding Angus that he needed to do the spelling assignment he put off over his three-week break, her son complied, but only in order to completely troll his teacher through his homework.
"This is his finished work," Lisa wrote in her tweet, which shared two photos of the Angus's completed assignment. "Only 7 and already #TrollingHisTeacher."
For the assignment, Angus was required to write out 10 sentences, each one using at least one of the spelling words listed up at the top of the page. The boy followed the rules of the assignment and composed 10 sentences, each one centring around the injustice of homework.
- I'm so over homework.
- No one likes homework.
- Little kids hate homework.
- can not [sic] stand homework.
- Can you name two kids that like homework?
- That homework stinks.
- My cat pooped out my homework.
- Who said homework is fun?
- Why is there homework when school is off?
- There are three groups that hate homework:
After signing his name at the bottom, Angus left his teacher an additional message in support of his cause (as if the 10 sentences weren't enough): "Save trees, less homework!"
Our fingers are crossed for Angus (and his mum) that he never has to do an unworthy homework assignment ever again!
