I am amazed. My normally type-A dd is blowing off one small part of her schoolwork. I'm not sure what to think!
Dd goes to French Immersion school. She's 9 years old, and in Grade 4, which is the first year in which she's received instruction in English. We speak English at home, but in school all her lessons are in French, except for English period, which is 40 minutes per day.
So, it turns out that dd has been doing all her homework except work on her dictee (French language spelling) and her marks on the dictee tests have been terrible. When I asked her about it, she said that she hates doing the studying and that she'd rather get a rotten mark on the dictee tests.
WWYD? Her work is otherwise exemplary. She regularly receives "Good Citizen" awards. Her teacher has not mentioned this aberration, and her teacher is really on the ball and truly wants every student to succeed.
All comments and advice welcome! TIA
