My son got an F, a freaking F on his report card. In Social Studies. I went for the parent teacher conference today and I'm so disappointed. Most of the grade comes from the state and capital tests. I asked the teacher if they work on them in the class and she said mostly it's just for them to study at home and then she thought I was blaming her or something. I was like? No? I'm not blaming you. I just asked if you work on them in the classroom. And also, how are you supposed to study for these things other than just looking at the page? I asked if she had any worksheets or anything but not really. We did do a game thing on a website a few times trying to help him study but obviously that didn't work out too well.
So we are going to go old school and study these. Mean mom 101 ;) Poor kid but he's going to know these damn things for the next test. Maybe I'll actually learn them too. I'm pretty horrible at Geography. I took Sex Ed in high school and you see where that got me. Living in the same area with 3 kids haha.
Scott says maybe we should just home school him. Yeah okie dokie sounds like a plan, you home school him and I'll go to work :)
