bbrandonsmom Posted November 28, 2011 Share Posted November 28, 2011 I don't know how to approach this. We told ds he'd have the week off for the holiday, but if he wanted to, he could do some work. He said no, because his school work is boring. He mentioned it again a few days later while my inlaws were in. I hope they didn't catch that. What do I do? We school M,T,W and F, because Th is co op. We only school a few hours each day. Through the week we have maybe 2 play dates, we go to the library, to the park, a field trip etc. I'm not exactly sure what ds is bored with, other than workbooks. I can't really make those go away. We're not giving him too easy, nor too hard stuff. Are there games or something I can do to make some of the work more fun? If all he had to do was art and reading, he'd be the happiest kid ever, but I'm not taking our core away for that. We're on Singapore 1a (finishing up), PR2 wk 6-he finds some of this tedious, TOG, but he's okay with that so far. I think it's mainly the math and LA. We're doing unit studies for science and he likes that, except now I'm thinking he's bored with the worksheets that go with them. What do I do? I'm trying to find math games that would be fun yet helpful. What bothers me a little also are the days I second guess home school. They are usually the co op days, because ds looks forward to class there very much. He loves his science and art classes and seeing his buddies there. I know it would not be like that in school, but... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
