My son is a bright boy, like most other 6 year olds. Loves 4 wheeling, trucks, bicycling, Wii, and spending time with his family. He is failing 1st grade...seemed to day dream a lot! At home he does his homework and seems to understand the concepts put in front of him. He just tells me he hates school! Actually there are two things he likes about school, 1 lunch, 2 going home. LOL!
Please send advice!

Talk to him about school to see if he will give you reasons why. If not, do they allow you to observe? Maybe you could see what's going on.
Then, rule out vision or hearing issues just to be sure. If none of these things are the cause...talk with the teacher to see if she can provide answers and get him motivated by giving him a little extra attention (possibly being a helper).
Read some books together about school (scared of, disliking, going to school etc. ) this will be an opportunity for him to tell you about what's going on. http://astore.amazon.com/wwwcjkidzcom3-20?%5Fencoding=UTF8&node=41
