So I've been working with DD (8yo, 3rd grade) on writing her answers in complete sentences by turning the question into a statement and then completing it with the answer.

She just wasn't getting it... several days and different subjects I tried explaining it. *&*start ripping hair out*&* ..lol

Finally...I said a really simple one... "Where is the dog?"
8yo smartass answer...."Mom, can't you see her right there?" ...uggg...

Try again...Me, "Pretend I'm on the phone..Where is the dog?"...
DD, "Ohh..The dog is on the couch!"
YES!

Ok.. what color is the sky?
Dd- The sky is blue. .... YES

So we decided to make it a game ...
I asked her a question.
She gave me the complete answer sentence...
Then she ran to the other room and told DH the answer and he had to guess my original question.

OMG...She loved it... I think she learned something too!

Haha- May be I will have her watch Jeopardy tonight! It didn't even click. Maybe if I had thought to have her watch that a week ago I wouldn't be missing so much hair! LOL
