merry gardens Posted January 31, 2011 Share Posted January 31, 2011 I'm frustrated and angry with my 12 yo son.:mad: I discovered a few moments ago that he did not complete the vocabulary workbook assignment from last week. :willy_nilly: It's like this often. Every week, I assign a unit of vocabulary from "Words on the Vine". I put those vocabulary words on his personalized spelling test, along with other words gathered from his spelling mistakes. I go over the vocabulary book and the words with him each week. It's a predictable pattern. Yet, I frequently find that he hasn't completed the work. He usually does poor on the spelling test too. Besides not doing the vocabulary book, he didn't write out the spelling cards or do any of the other various activities I have gone over with him to help him with his spelling. BTW, the amount of work I assign him is very reasonable, possibly too light. He often makes excuses for not doing it. I usually just tell him to finish the pages, write out the spelling cards, etc. but today I got tougher. I told him he couldn't go to his Boy Scout meeting tonight. What do you do when you discover your middle schoolers didn't finish an assignment? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
