Argh!! DS' (4) teacher sent him home with homework tonight. He was suppised to write A and a on one of those worksheet pages. I about pulled all my hair out trying to get him to do it. He kept saying "it's boring". I do not want to make him miserable over it and have him end up hating reading and writing but I also want him to understand he has to do work assigned to him. It does not help that I am slightly annoyed that we got an email yesterday saying all the kids need to be able to write their names by Fri in oder to get an ice cream sundae. Two days to encourage him to write his name? He is going to be heart broken tomorrow. I just feel they should have given us a couple weeks to work on this, not a couple days. *sigh*
Anyhow, any tips for encouraging a good homework ethic at this age without pushing him so hard that he ends up hating school?
