Hi Pope- That's great you are going to be able to be home with the kids! One thing I am thinking of doing with my kids this summer is researching how to build a compost bin then building it with them. Here are some articles that might give you more ideas:
with summer coming I will be home with tjhe kids and was wondering if anyone had some good suggestions for at home activities to pass the days; I am usually in school but this summer I have taken online classes in order to spend more time with the kids .
Pope, Boy do I know those tearful homework nights. And, yes, thank goodness for the IEP which does allow extra time, manipulatives, etc.
I apologize I'm very new to this site and haven't taken the time to get on here regularly like I intended to. Life sometimes gets in the way :) I will try to be better at that.
Hi tavner; I understand the homework issue. Homework time in our house takes at least an hour and a half every night and sometimes I just have to send the teacher a note saying that my son just could not finish the work; we usually get all the work done by Friday and turn it in-- his IEP allows for that. Honestly sometimes we are both so frustrated that we are about in tears.
I have an 8-1/2 yr old daughter diagnosed with a rare chromosome disorder called Idic 15. This creates many learning disabilities for her. Some of the simplest tasks are very challenging for her. Homework is definitely hard for her ~ and me to try to help her understand.
