Sam has been a bit reluctant at school to do some of the "work." And by work I mean coloring and painting and such. You know, the little activities they have that help teach the kids their letters, numbers, shapes, colors and that sort of thing.
He's come home with several blank pieces of construction paper and a note saying he didn't want to do it.
Now, he is only in pre-pre-pre-school so it's not THAT big a problem, but it is something that I fear could foreshadow problems in the future. So today I told him he HAD to do ALL the work his teachers asked him to do. He was under strict instructions to do his work! I even spoke to the teachers and told them they need to be firm and tell him he has to do the work.
Apparently, it worked. He had a great day and come home with a few pictures. AND he got to make a Cheerios Birdfeeder that he was VERY excited about. We hung it up as soon as we got home.
It took a while for him to find the "right spot."
Let's try it here!
No, that's not good. I know, how about here...
This is where he said... "It looks Beautiful There! But that's not where I want it!"
FINALLY! It was "Perfect!" But I think that was mostly because I was cold and told him he had to leave it there!
