Choices, choices

The six year old has been doing much much better with his spelling. This is because I have been drilling the words over and over into his head on the Thursday night before his test and also Friday morning on the way to school. This has resulted in three perfect scores in a row. Woohoo!!!!!



This week he steadfastly refused. He was whining, crying, deliberately misspelling words. (Generally being a pain in my rear.) So I gave him a choice. He could be punished all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday (No TV, no computer, no DS) or he could work on his spelling. Guess what he chose? That's right, the fun fun punishment!



It's gonna be a long weekend....

For as smart as these little 6 year olds are, they sure can be silly.

One of the girls at work has trouble getting her eldest to learn to spell, because the second eldest is a great speller and keeps showing off whenever the eldest struggles on a word.

Sounds like you're going to have an interesting weekend.

Sounds just like a boy. I know. I have 4.

My sons teacher has a spelling homework routine for us to do all week. It makes it a little easier I think.

Good luck!

He chose the punishment. He must have really wanted to avoid those spelling words.

Eh. Mopping is so twentieth century. Much like ironing.

I apologise, but it does not approach me. There are other variants?
