Buster is doing well with his new reading program.
I bought the first unit of Rod and Staff because I was frustrated with what I had and I knew I had taught two kids to read with R&S .
He is enjoying it.
He is doing very, very well with it, actually
and he rarely makes a mistake.
BUT that was before yesterday. He had one page of stuff left to do and I got a call asking if I could go to the church and help the gals stain 15 doors.
I told Buster that since he was nearly done his school he could go with me.
He got overly excited. Decided he didn't want to finish and proceeded to do everything WRONG on purpose. He was requiring a ton of help and crying and carrying on. It was nuts.
Finally - I said, "Look, you never make mistakes in this book. You know how to do this. You either get it done, and done right, or I leave without you."
And I walked away.
He panicked and cried, but somehow suddenly he remembered how to do it perfectly.
End of story.
