Don't feel like Reading or Writing? You don't have too.
My son, HATED reading and writing. He was fine until late kinder. About that time the teacher started encouraging the kids to write and read more. Most of the kids did fine but my son would balk. He had no interest in either. This led to the teacher putting more and more pressure on him. It was hard on him, poor baby would come home so stressed and angry.
First grade wasn't any better so I brought him home. Through the rest of first and second (I used public school at home options) I pushed him to read and write also. It was hell. Both of us would end up in tears nearly everyday.
Finally I had enough. I told him, you don't want to read or write? You don't have too. And for about 6 months he didn't. Then one day I suggested he write his little sister a note. It started with me writing almost every word on a white board for him. *Gradually he began learning how to spell simple words. Just recently he's become confident enough to sound out words and attempt to spell them on his own. Now you'll find his notes all over the house. Silly, sad, angry, happy. He writes everything. He's reading everything too. Signs, packages, posters, subtitles, labels. This kids is insatiable!
*It helped that I would pay him 2 cents each word he spelled correctly and 1 cent for each word he attempted to spell,lol.
