Test Prep

James is in his second week of Kindergarten.  He started getting homework this week.  The most recent homework was about the numbers zero and one.  One part was to look at the number, find the picture depicting that number, and then coloring in the little bubble below that picture.  He is learning how to fill in standardised test scantrons in the second week of Kindergarten.  I cannot believe it.  I know many schools teach to the tests, but this is crazy.  I have never been a fan of worksheets at the best of times, but this is taking it too far.
