The numbers are hard to hear sometimes. Seeing where the real deficits are and knowing how hard my boy is working is a tough pill to swallow. Most of you know we struggle with homework here  and so we had to talk about it at the meeting. We tossed around ideas and thoughts on how to motivate Sam and we came to the conclusion  that there was no answer. We have tried consequences, rewards, loss of recess, and nothing worked. Even missing recess didn't phase him. He wouldn't be angry or upset. He just didn't care.

It wasn't until the end of the meeting, when the reward system for his classroom was brought up,  that we figured it out. Actually Mrs G. figured  it out first. Mrs HM jumped on board and Mrs. A agreed. she came up with a great way to approach it with Sammy. He came home thrilled he had a new plan.

I am so blessed to have a team that works and understands Sammy.
