MrsMe Posted September 5, 2012 Share Posted September 5, 2012 (edited) gasp! I'm ready to instill it! Dd is just not focusing and I'm ready to tell her whatever isn't done is homework. Would that be a bad thing? Nothing is too hard or too easy. I don't know what the heck her problem is. She's just 12. It is a rather full day, but good grief, we can't even complete half the day's program. I have to have her redo things. Her latest is a research "postcard" on Carthage. Her written answer, "Carthage was destroyed in 698.It was beautiful though. The sky is blue and there were lots of white fluffly clouds." HUH? And this is her second try after reading about it in Wiki. I'm beside myself. We went through 5 math problems together out of 8 and the last 3 (6-8) she had to do herself. They didn't even look like she used the same directions. HUH? Another problem was for 19,592, the value of the one is a _____......her answer...."ones". Yet the other two problems concerning the value of the numbers on this number were right. HUH? It's going to be a really long year if we have to do it all twice. We started at 10 and it's 4pm.
