Are there any teachers in here? (Elementary) Pls help!
Well maybe not just teachers but anyone who has some input for me:). I hardly ever post in here, sorry I am a slacker. Lol.
Anyways, my name is Raegan. I have a son who is 6 years old..he is about graduate from Kindergarten..woohoo! He has done really well, all A's. I have very proud of him:). But here is my delimma. We have my boyfriend's daughter a lot. We haven't in the past bc my boyfriend has been out of state in the Army but now he's out and home and we'll get her much more often. She has horrible stability at her Moms house. She's in a bad environment. She is 9 years old, has an 8 year old brother and 1 year old brother and there's another on the way. She tells us that her Mom won't let her do her homework but that she has to spend time with her brothers (aka babysit). Then she tells me the other day that she was failing Math but is now passing with an A. But she's going to fail reading because she didn't turn in her reading logs. It is hard to completely believe her because she lies a lot. She usually stops though after the first day we have her. We are eventually going to try for custody hopefully very soon...she is wanting to live with us also. But my question is what can I do to help her with school? Does anyone have any ideas on any activities we could do in the summer? Not a lot but enough to help her and then maybe reward her if she does well? She also says she will pass the year and does not have to go to summer school. I have been urging my boyfriend to make a parent/teacher conference to find out what's going on.
Any help would be greately appreciated. Thank you SO much!
