Tonight we had a conference with Blake's teacher. It was basically the same conference we've had before:
Spelling is improving dramatically.
Handwriting is improving, he's working really hard.
Math, we don't even need to discuss. (For those of you who don't know he is a math WHIZ!)
Reading, he's at a 3.8 AR level (which basically means he's reading about a year ahead)
Academically he is doing WONDERFULLY. No complaints. He works very hard.
But.... (there always has to be a but, doesn't there?)... he is (STILL) having trouble making good choices and doing the right thing. For example... when he was supposed to be writing something he decided to stab himself in the privates with his pencil because he thought it would be funny..... another time, when he was finished a writing project he reached over and grabbed his friend's pencil while she was trying to write.... goofing off in the bathroom.... talking when he's supposed to be working.... writing 1 sentence and calling his story "finished".
We have talked and talked and talked about this issue... this ONGOING issue with him.
We have talked about how he needs to Stop. Think. Do the right thing.
Apparently it's not working. I want to make a game... the "Stop and think" game... and have scenarios and choices and depending on which choice you choose you either get to move ahead or back.
So... I'm asking my slew of blog readers (LOLOL)... do you have ANY ideas? Either on what to do to help him learn how to control himself.... OR ideas of scenarios for the game??
Thanks, y'all :)
