DD all of the sudden this week at Pre-K decided she was not going to write neatly and was going to pretend she did not know how to do math. He teacher finally told me about it today. As soon as she got home I sat with her and made her write her name 5 times- neatly. We had to erase and start over a few time and I also made her do the math paper she refused to do- and write nicely on- over. Tomorrow she will be copying sentences and Monday (school is out here) she will be doing a few basic math facts to giver her teachers on Tuesday to make up for all the crap she pulled this week. What would you have done?
the one on the left if form school- on the right is the one I made so she could do it over.Answer Question

For a 4 year old? I would have made her do her work correctly and then I would talk to her about why she is pretending not to know things. I don't know that I would punish her with additional work (that may be how she views it), especially if there is an emotional reason she is doing it. Maybe she is going through a 'I don't want to grow up' phase and just needs some reassurance.
