Earlier this week DD told our GD, who is going to start 3rd grade, she had to complete some math work sheets before the start of school. Well, she did the addition, she did the subtraction.....but, she was tired. She didn't want to do the multiplication. It's not that she has forgotten, she just doesn't like to do the practice sheets.
She told her mom she thought she would not take math this year....
Her mom told her that was something she would have to discuss with her teacher. It wasn't a decision a mom could make.
And our GD is just the type to think through her reasons and then bring up the subject to her teacher. Wish I could be there if she does....hahahahahahaha!
