I have a third grader. Her grades are very good, although she puts forth minimal effort. She is so excited when an assignment says, 'Write a summary of at least five sentences" and she ONLY does five sentences.
In the car, the other day, she said she hated school. I have asked her every year if she wants to be homeschooled and she says no. She doesn't want to do any school bc it's too much work. She wants to play dolls and watch tv all the time...seriously. I let her watch 30 minutes most days---some days 1 hour and she only gets 10 minutes on the computer.
I've asked her if she has trouble with anyone at school. No. She loves the social aspect of school. When I threaten her with homeschool, she gets mad bc she won't have recess.
Her teacher gives out "stretch" homework, which is not too hard. It maybe makes her think 10% more than usual. THe stretch homework is optional so she never wants to do it.
Her behavior is very good and never gets in trouble at school.
What should I do???
