Relatable AF Memes About Homework

By Kim Bongiorno

If you thought homework was a pain in the butt when you were a kid, just wait until your own kids are old enough to get assignments. Whether they’re the little kids’ coloring pages or the older kids’ humanities service projects, or—every parent’s worst nightmare—reading logs, homework makes after-school time the worst time of the day. There will be tears, tantrums, and even some time-outs for all parties involved, but at least we can laugh about it through the medium of relatable memes. Misery loves company, right?

So come commiserate with some of the funniest parents sneaking onto the world wide web in between their Google searches for how, exactly, to multiply fractions. Their hysterical memes cover the full range of the homework hell that is our burden to bear.

Never before has a school year been anticipated like the 2021-2022 one. Many parents, myself included, have been spending A LOT of time at home with their kids. The pandemic created a situation during which many children went to school virtually half or, in my case, all year long.

Math Teacher Grades Kids' Homework With Memes in Viral Video

An Ohio math teacher has shared his method for making grading homework more interesting, and it involves the use of memes.

Posting to TikTok, the teacher, who goes by the account name JJgrubb, shared footage of him marking some mathematics homework, and attaching sticker versions of famous memes to the tests corresponding to which grade the student got.

Text overlaying the footage reads: "Best purchase a teacher could make."

One 15 out of 30 test was given a sticker which showed a stock image of a man surrounded by question marks.

While a 14 out of 30 score warranted an sticker of an elderly woman drinking tea, alongside the caption: "Brace yourself more studying is needed."

And an example of a student that scored well, received 19 out of 30, was given a sticker depicting actor Ben Stiller giving a thumbs up, and the words: "Good job."

Jjgrubb captioned the amusing video, which can be viewed here, writing: "A meme sticker for every grade #fyp #foryoupage #teachersoftiktok #meme."

Since posting the footage on November 30, 2020, the teacher's hack has been seen more than 20 million times.

@jjgrubb A meme sticker for every grade 👍 #fyp #foryoupage #teachersoftiktok #meme ♬ original sound - grubb

It has also garnered 3.6 million likes, and thousands of people have shared their thoughts on his idea in the comments section.

One TikTok user, Rachael Gordon, wrote: "Wouldn't even be mad for getting those stickers on tests I have failed."

Another person, Destiny, added: "Getting those stickers would literally motivate me to do better lmao."

An account by the name of user4492536227170 revealed: "As a parent I would be laughing so hard I would forget to pay attention to the grade."

Renaimed explained: "My math teacher would see that as inappropriate."

Vflo asked: "OK where did you purchase? These are getting gifted to my kids teacher LOL."

CJ typed: "My son might fail on purpose for the funnier stickers."

Kylie commented: "I'd just be happy to get a sticker i don't care about the grade ahahah."

To this, Jjgrubb then explained: "I don't use the negative ones unless I still put them on a 100%... so I promise there is no encouragement for that."

This teacher is clearly a breath of fresh air for his students. Another educator that was deemed to have gone above and beyond recently received a very special thank you in the form of a zoom surprise.

A class at Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, decided to thank their professor for his efforts by holding up messages of thanks on their video call, and footage of the event went viral online.

Newsweek have contacted Jjgrubb for comment.

The Funniest Work From Home Memes for Parents

Inside: Funny work from home memes for parents that will make you laugh so hard you forget that everything, including working from home with kids, is impossible right now.

Remember a few years ago when we all laughed until we cried watching this BBC work from home interview ?

Working from home with kids who are able to bounce their way into your video conference was a delightfully funny scenario from afar. And that little girls’ spunk was amazing. Not to mention the super mom who comes flying in after the baby…

Honestly, I can’t even recap this any further. I’m laughing too hard.

Working from Home Got Real, Real Fast

Fast forward three years and now working from home with kids is our reality for the foreseeable future. Schools are shut down. Businesses have sent workers home. We are social distancing and flattening that curve like responsible citizens.

But it’s hard.

Not hard compared to the hard others face around the world in war-torn countries, but hard compared to our normal lives of getting the kids on the bus and going into the office.

We are attempting to fit 8 hours of work into a day in addition to entertaining/feeding/teaching our children. Our tiny pupils are feeling restless. And even the introverts among us are already looking forward to hitting up a networking event with strangers just for some social interaction.

Work from Home With Kids Memes & Videos to Bring Some Humor to our Lives

There’s going to be a lot of fixing to do after this whole thing is over.

People will be recovering, the economy is going to need a boost, and kids will need to relearn a lot of math. But we need to deal with the here and now, and the best way I know how to deal with the here and now is to take it one day at a time.

And to laugh. A lot.

We need humor to make us feel less alone when we’re struggling. We need humor for our mental health. We need humor always, and I think now more than ever.

So as we do what feels impossible over the next (???) weeks, let’s lean into some funny work from home memes, shall we?

We Can Do This!

I’ll close with this.

These memes are funny because they are true. We are all simply trying our best in less than ideal circumstances and our best is absolutely good enough.

And don’t forget, even when you feel like you’re messing up, I bet you’re doing a great job. Because working parents multitask like bosses.

You can do this. We can do this!

21 Hilarious Homeschool Memes for Moms and Teachers

Homeschool memes are in a league of their own.

It’s not easy being a homeschool mom, is it? Especially in the last weeks of homeschooling, we need additional motivation to get through the time that separates us from a well-deserved vacation!

We all know how rewarding homeschooling is, and of course we appreciate its benefits, but it can also be really stressful! A good laugh helps to relieve this stress and put us hard-working homeschool moms in a better mood.

This list of 21 homeschool memes has me laughing so hard, I’m almost in tears.

I’m sure you’ll say “this is me!” more than once!

Who Is Homeschool Spanish Academy? We’re an online Spanish school committed to empowering parents and their children to live happier lives, enjoy stronger learning outcomes, and experience real success. Learn more about our classes.  ➡️

Hilarious Homeschool Jokes for Belly Laughs

Grab your coffee or cup of tea and relax! You’ll find a bit of everything from stay-at-home mom memes to teacher appreciation memes. And many more!

1. The Coffee is Gone

Ouch. Just ran out of your energy elixir before you’re even halfway through the morning?

Been there!

With your demanding schedule, it’s too easy to feel like you don’t have enough energy to get through the day. Take care of yourself and make sure you’ve got plenty of coffee beans to grind and big mugs to fill.

2. Day 7 of Homeschool Biology

I love this one, because it’s hilarious. Not because you should try this at home!

What a creative way to teach science in your homeschool, right? This resourceful mom needs a break—but she doesn’t sacrifice her chance to teach a valuable lesson at the same time.

Oh, and I checked it on Reddit: chloroform does have a smell, similar to disinfectants.

3. Homeschool Moms Be Like

Ironic, isn’t it? Non-homeschoolers think it’s a disadvantage for our kids to be raised and educated “outside the box,” meanwhile that is quite literally the entire reason why we do it. That’s the point!

Hear Your Child Speak Spanish! Your Free Trial Class Is Waiting ➡️

4. Home Economics 

One of my favorites. This homeschooled kid got played by his smart mother! 

Jokes aside, it’s a brilliant home economics lesson to calculate, measure, and mix ingredients for a family dinner. Combining math, science, literacy and fine motor skills with a slightly burned, oversalted meatloaf? Bring it on!

5. Homeschool Never Gets Canceled

The beginning of the COVID lockdowns saw public school students suddenly “school-less” and they seemed happy about it at the beginning. Sporting events were also canceled and life as we knew it stopped. But not for homeschool kids!

6. Teacher Appreciation Meme

Some parents tend to blame the teachers for their children’s shortcomings at school (you know who they are). But during the obligatory quarantine for coronavirus, it likely dawned on them that it wasn’t the teacher’s fault after all.

7. Homeschool Co-op meme

Sometimes you join a homeschool co-op for socializing reasons—that aren’t necessarily for the kids!

Every homeschool parent deserves to have interactions with other adults to feel sane.

8. Non-Homeschooling Mom vs Homeschooling Mom Meme

A big round of applause for us homeschooling moms! We know what “tired” really means. 

9. It’s Pajama Day Every Day

When you homeschool, you know this isn’t true—but it’s a pretty hilarious inside joke. We know that pajamas aren’t the “uniforms” for homeschooled kids, but non-homeschoolers insist that they are!

Hand-picked for you: 10 Sample Homeschool Schedules You Can Copy

10. It Takes a Village To Raise a Child

Yes, it takes a village to raise a child—but what if you don’t like the village? You homeschool.

11. Homeschooling Takes a Toll

Ironic memes always get a chuckle out of me. 

It only takes five days of homeschooling your own kids to make you look 50 years older than you really are. But kudos to you! Keep it up and you just might make it to 100 by week two.

12. Homeschooling Dad Memes

It’s not all power-napping, spitting contests, and house fires when dad’s in charge of homeschooling. While the homeschooling dad memes are hilarious, it’s true that dads don’t get enough credit or recognition for their hard work when they’re the primary educator at home! But, just in case, make sure you’ve got a fire extinguisher refilled and at the ready when dad’s leading the science experiments!

13. And the Best Thing ABout Homeschooling Is…

…no homework obviously!

There’s no homework to forget because all your schoolwork is kind of homework at the same time, and after your homeschooling day is over, there’s nothing left to be done.

14. Homeschool Socialization Meme

Apologies to all the Karens.

Somehow, non-homeschooling parents think that homeschooled kids have no opportunities for socialization. Like if there were no neighbors, siblings, cousins, other co-op kids or friends from extracurricular activities. 

It’s “homeschooling” not “caveschooling”! 

15. Homeschooling Parent-Teacher Conferences Meme

Obviously there’s no need for infamous parent-teacher conferences in the homeschooling environment but it’s hilarious just to imagine them. 

16. Homeschooling STEAM Activities Meme

Homeschool parents are good at inventing creative and educational activities on a budget. This project was a solid lifesafer during the coronavirus TP shortage!

17. Homeschooling Methods Meme

You don’t need to be a teacher to homeschool your kids . It’s even difficult to find one single method of homeschooling as all kids and all families have very specific needs. That’s why you can do really well without knowing the whole philosophy behind what you’re doing.

18. Homeschool Projects Meme

Same idea as the “Home Economics” meme above—smart moms use their child’s learning opportunities to get things done at home. 

I’m sure you agree that matching the tupperware lids is definitely an advanced project!

19. Homeschool School Reunion Meme

It’s like parent-teacher conferences. There’s no need for school reunions when you homeschool your own kids, but if we had one, would the name tags be necessary?

20. Mornings in Homeschooling Houses

The wild-eyed insanity of getting the kids ready for school and out the door before it’s too late and they’re marked tardy by their teacher. Nope, I don’t miss it. 

Hand-picked for you: 8 Amazing Benefits of Homeschool vs Public School

21. A Homeschooling Mom’s Love

In my case, I love them so much that I would skip it! Just kidding—but I would definitely get a tutor for this part. Math was never my strong suit. 

Did You Have a Laugh?

Being a homeschooling mom has its tough moments, but overall it’s the best decision for you and your kids and you know you love it! These hilarious memes reflect the good times and the bad, as well as the creative charm of educating our kids at home. I hope you got a good laugh from some of these and that they charged your batteries! 

Don’t hesitate to share these funny memes with your homeschooling parent friends. I’m sure they need a break as much as you do!

“It’s a great way to learn Spanish, from native Spanish speakers in a 1-on-1 environment. It’s been fairly easy to schedule classes around my daughter’s other classes. The best value for us has been ordering multiple classes at a time. All the instructors have been great!”

– Cindy D, Parent of 3

“HSA offers very affordable, quality, one on one classes with a native speaker. My son has greatly benefited from taking classes. We have seen his confidence increase as well as his pronunciation improve, because he learns from a native Spanish speaker. HSA has quick, personal customer service. I have appreciated the one on one interaction and teaching that my son gets from his teachers. He has gotten to know his teachers, which has increased his confidence in speaking Spanish. Our family has been very pleased with our experience so far!”

– Maple, Parent of 3

“My Son, Heath, is taking the classes. He’s been with Luisa the entire time and we absolutely love her. She is always patient and is a great teacher. Heath’s dad speaks Spanish so they get to have little conversations.”

– William R, Parent of 3
