A 'D' In science...
We're looking for an appropriate consequence for the 'D' our 6th grader 'earned' in science.
It wasn't a D for poor test results or even poor homework grades, it was for missed assignments (3 labs which were to be done in class, I never saw the note home saying when makeups were so the teacher never got the note back and the labs were never made up) Basically, it was for immaturity and lack of follow through and responsibility. He'd do the work and then forget to turn it in. :O(
He's 11 and in 6th grade.
The school does not offer summer school for science. I've already checked.
Part of me feels it was a 'D' earned by him, his teacher and myself. It takes a village to fail a kid...ya know?
Part of me feels like it's all on him...ultimately it's his responsibility. I do remember what I was doing in 6th grade and I wasn't nearly as weighted down with school responsibility as he is... times sure have changed.
So any suggestions?
He's being very helpful right now. LoL
I've asked the principal and his sci teacher for advice, as well....haven't heard back yet.
