What do you tell Johnny's Mom when she demands to know why Johnny didn't write down his spelling words or copy the important weekly reminders from the board? And what if said weekly reminders are on the board all week? AND what if I write on the board each morning to copy the reminders and homework for the day right when the students come in the door? As it is, I already write on the board what books/supplies the students need to take home with them, so they don't forget to take home a certain book for homework or studying for a test...yet they still forget their books. Why is it MY fault? I can't walk around and make sure everything is done, and better yet, I don't feel I HAVE to. Thoughts??
