    My 2 cents' worth...

    When my daughter was in 4th grade, we had a GREAT opportunity to go to Washington DC for a week (my husband was traveling on business, so his airfare and the hotel were paid for). My daughter's teacher gave her some math and reading assignments which she faithfully worked on every evening at the hotel (I'm a teacher and her dad's anal retentive, so it's not like she had a choice). She also had to take pictures and create a powerpoint presentation to present to the entire 4th grade and to her gifted class when we returned. Overall, it was a fantastic experience for everyone. HOWEVER, I DO REALIZE THIS IS THE EXCEPTION TO THE WAY IT USUALLY GOES, but I wanted to share our personal experience.

    PS: This was also during the time when the snipers were people in the DC area (2 years ago), so we had that extra bit of "history" (sad as it was).
