LOL, Greaseball, his fave is Captain Underpants, he is really into batheroom humor and comic books. He is in fact a great artist and does some rad comic strips.
I don' see his teacher liking book reports on C underpants LOLOL I may try it with him though(i've always been a rebel) to see her reaction . Seriously though, i wouldn't want him to stand out bc of his 'wierd' ma.
We were doing bedtime stories, but now there is no time bc of the required reading
I do like the trading off of reading pages and it seems to be working in helping him get interested in the stories.
He doesn't complain much bc of the math practice bc i make it up and he is pretty good at basic equasions except the borrowing & carrying bc of a directional issue (maybe dyslexia...hate that term)
He is coming from a Waldorf school and this is totally different, W schools just are too expensive for us and becoming too exclusive.
Don't mean to go on but i really feel very strongly that summer is a time for winding down and being bored to allow what they learned all year to be assimilated (sp?) and since we are new i feel i should follow the rules to the letter.
