i have always kinda ignored this up until now. (he's 8.5)
i'm not sure what to do, he's a video game/lego/computer kinda guy. dislikes reading, dislikes me reading non-fiction to him. is bored with historical videos and trips to the local (and very cool) history museum.
in our state he is required to learn local, state, US and world history starting in 1st grade. i'm not sure how long i can continue to "enhance" his quarterly reports. and he has to start testing soon at the end of the year.
any suggestions? i don't want to fight with him. i'm not going to bother trying to "teach" him some random facts he's not interested in anyway.
he's classic ADD and gets bored really fast, and is interested the most in hands on projects, esp science.
