A peek into a Jamie-Hannah conversation.
As I go thru Hannah's Friday folder I notice that as they practiced making the letter S this week all of Hannah's papers are marked with "Keep Practicing". So I say,
"Hannah, tomorrow we will go to Target and buy school paper to practice our letter S."
Hannah responds with crying and "no I don't want to practice, I don't want homework, I know how to make the letter S, see!! (as she points to the paper)
so I negotiate with "we can get a Starbucks at Target then come home and you and me both will make the letter S together I will help you ok?"
And of course to this she responds happily with " ok lets do that only you don't tell my teacher you did them and I will tell her I made the S's ok mom??"
ummm did I miss something here or did I just give my daughter the impression that not only am I taking her shopping and for Starbucks but I am also going to write a bunch of S's down on paper for her to turn into her teacher as her own??
