Here is my beautiful daughter. Love her. How could you not love such beauty? A bit about her: she is 10, in 5th grade, straight A student, which is a strict pre-requisite for her out of school activities, which solely consists of competitive swimming. Now swimming, she is quite good at - as a matter of fact, she will be swimming in the Junior Olympics in a little over a week, and has qualified to do so in all 11 events. Let's get back to the straight A's.
I do admit, Hannah knows that she has to do well in school, so for the most part, she takes it upon herself to work very, very hard - math, reading, science, etc etc. There are moments that I ride her about being more diligent with homework - you have to in this situation because she is literally dividing every night between 2 hours of swimming and then 2 hours of homework. Long story short - she gets done what she needs to get done.
So I am reading my hysterical girlfriends blog last night with a post pertaining to her 5th graders homework last night - (check it out http://escaping-jerolyn.blogspot.com/ ) and decided to share my own experience with last nights homework here at our house. Hers was math - this one is spelling.
Now Hannah is by far the WORST SPELLER ON THIS PLANET. Good thing computers have spell check!! Anyway here is part of her spelling page:
How? How does this happen? How can you answer the first part of the question correctly - and then MISSPELL THE WORD WHEN IT IS PRINTED CORRECTLY RIGHT NEXT TO YOU??? And not only that, you can't see this part, but the words are also listed vertically on the right on the upper portion of this paper!!! TWICE they are right there, spelled correctly, she re-writes them - and spells them wrong. Oh, well. When does Middle School start?
