I’ve been sharing some of the struggles we are having with Gavin and school. He’s not reading directions and so much of the time, his homework isn’t even close to being done correctly.
One of the things that we are trying to get him to do is slow down and read the directions.
There is a section of his Math homework that is actually testing his ability to read the directions. The questions are simple and the answers are pretty obvious and located directly in the directions.
Gavin never readable directions so he never gets these questions right.
Some of the answers he comes up with are obviously fabricated and have nothing to do with what he’s being asked to do.
However, Gavin showed me his homework today and to my surprise, he actually read the directions. He even got the answers correct and I was completely floored by this and gave him a high five.
I’ve never seen him get any of these answers correct.
Now I know he can do it. Hopefully, he’ll continue to slow down and read the directions going forward. I’m really proud of him and I made sure he knew it. 🙂
In the image above, you can see that he did the work correctly. His handwriting is a work in progress but it’s clear that he took the time to read the directions and that’s awesome.
