Copying school work is a cry for help! Home school learning, no more copying! A teachers job is very difficult and to teach a classroom of 30 children must be one huge challenge. When I was at school I copied, not because I was being naughty but because I was off school so much with asthma and suffered from dyslexia, I just did not understand the work and could not face looking stupid. Which we all know happens! All you hear is how that child is so bright, instead of lucky to have an amazing memory, which just sucks up information like a sponge. I could see the struggles my little girl had at school with what I went through. One to one tuition helps! Being shown what to do instead of being told has a much better impact on how the information is absorbed in the brain. For me personally I feel with all the Government and Council checks it puts pressures on teachers, which is then forced on our poor children. Children are not allowed a childhood any more. Homework from a very young age and it gets worse as they get older. School should be school and home time is for relaxing and enjoying your youth, as when you grow up it is nothing but stress!
Little Snowflake is not a great reader but she loves to write. And personally for me writing is better than reading as you have to think about the word you write or type out. I hope to have her touch typing by next year. Here is a little script Little Snowflake put together and animated using Crazy Talk with her drawings and voice! Gifted children do not get the support they deserve!
