yeah, homework tonight was a complete f'ing MESS.
it shouldn't have been; he knew what to expect, part of it was a repeat process & the other part i had told him about in the morning. the work wasn't difficult he was being difficult [i'm being really nice with that because i'm his mother & i love him, but OMG, this kid is SO going to be the death of me!!!!].
in the end i wasn't even helping him. "fine, read the book, make up whatever words you want, write the sentences however you want, i don't care, it's not my homework."
[he'll be writing his own version of mommy dearest one day]
so then, THEN, after we're all done with the fripping homework i go through his backback to see if there was anything & i find a letter from teach. i asked for it, i know, stupid me.....
work on the following at home:
* counting by ones to 100
* " " 5's to 100
* " " 10's to 100
* writing numbers to 100
* counting on to add (locate the larger number & count up)
* commit to memory addition & subtraction facts to 20
* recognize coins (name & value)
um, he knows this stuff, he's tested on it.
what he is though is S-L-O-W. really slow, like you can't even imagine slow, like you think he's doing something else but he isn't slow.
so i don't know.
maybe i was wrong.
maybe he isn't ready for 2nd grade &
maybe he would be better off repeating 1st.
i know i can't do another year of fighting every single night for hours to help him get his homework done. i don't want him to think of me that way nor do i want him to hate school & learning.
