Everyday my daughter has a lot of homework. Eight vocabulary words on flash cards. She goes over and has to make a sentence for each word. Then has a list of three letter words to sound out. Plus writing assignments. BbBb. She has to write the letters in patterns and write three words for each letter. Most of the time it's three letters a night but tonight it's four letters. Plus a math work sheet. It takes two hours a night. She does not want to do it and has a bad additude about it. she also doesn't like correction. If she writes a b instead of a d. I'm not sure of what to do to make this fun for her. I can complain that its too much homework but that doesn't solve the problem. How do I make this a positive experience for her? How can I help her?
Today we wrote sentences for three words. The only actual assignment to turn in. I also gave her thirty minutes that started when her foot stepped off the bus lol.. This convinced her to get home quicker while my son caught lovebugs the whole way home. Lol. Tonight my bf will go over the flash cards while I'm at work. Then I will do it again in the am since her test is tomorrow. She was a different child today; happy, laughing, and, smiling.. She even made up her own sentences.. For the word she she came up with...... I can do this. Made me smile just a bit..
