cornelia9805 Posted August 30, 2012 Share Posted August 30, 2012 Today was our first day of officially homeschooling. My two older girls go to school twice a week and are at home three days a week. School started yesterday so today was the first day of assignments. My SN child was out of control. Her Algebra teacher gave her an assessment to do today. She was supposed to spend an hour on it and there was the mistake. There was nothing from Pre-algebra on it. Everything I am positive she is capable of doing. She did 18 problems and put question marks by the rest. :glare: We did review all summer. She should been able to answer 40 out of 50, easy. Her teacher gave her way out by saying just put a question mark by the ones she didn't know. Everything that required more than 3 seconds of thought was passed over. I had her work a few of the problems that I knew she could do. It turned into a 2 1/2 hour long process that she complained and argued about the whole entire time. After lunch she was to read 3 chapters of history (maybe 20 pages). She lied about reading it twice before finally finishing reading at almost 6:30 (she did have run team for 1 1/2 hours in there). I finally lost my cool by the end of the day when she wouldn't finish her assignment. I felt so well prepared for the day too. It is really frustrating because there was no reason at all why she could not have been done before noon. Today was pretty much the easiest day of the school year and this is what I got. I'm really not looking forward to the rest of the year (this is basically a continuation of last year). To make it even worse her significantly younger sister was totally on top of all of her assignments. The differences were glaringly obvious today.
