And I'm going crazy! I have a 6th grade boy who forgets (or "forgets) something every single day. Almost never does he have his homework. He has lost not one but two copies of a novel we are reading in class, and daily I hear "May I please borrow a copy of the novel? I lost mine." He has lost the privelidge of group work because I refuse to let him bring the group down with his lack of work. I have tried conferencing with home. Nothing changes. I have informed the P of my delima, but nothing changes. This child is completely capable; he is just lazy lazy lazy! Mom is a rescuer who comes to school at the drop of a hat to bring everything from his homework to his lunch to a new button for his shirt. I am ready to go crazy. Does anyone have any new ideas for me? I have tried all the standard things.
