Sprite really dislikes homework and makes up elaborate excuses to avoid doing it!
“Misunderstanding” the set tasks https://spritessite.wordpress.com/2012/10/27/declining-the-table/
Hiding the homework work sheets https://spritessite.wordpress.com/2011/01/28/say-cheese-for-les-souris/

Quibbling about the due date https://spritessite.wordpress.com/2010/03/10/the-ultimate-homework-excuse/
Claiming to not have suitable equipment or materials to complete the task https://spritessite.wordpress.com/2010/08/13/getting-organized-side-steps/
Being unable to find the things she needs. Where’s all my stuff gone? https://spritessite.wordpress.com/2009/08/31/wheres-all-my-stuff-gone/
Her excuses are so elaborate because Imaginational Dabrowski told her she was not allowed to say the dog ate her homework!
Strategies we have tried to help Sprite with her homework include
Getting organized https://spritessite.wordpress.com/2010/08/09/getting-organized-step-1/
Having a homework place set up for her https://spritessite.wordpress.com/2010/10/13/getting-organized-homework-steps/
Having suitable stationery available https://spritessite.wordpress.com/2010/08/19/getting-organized-stationery-steps/
Trying to maintain a healthy life balance https://spritessite.wordpress.com/2010/08/12/getting-organized-step-2/
But we still have problems like this!

Fortunately we discussed the topic of homework on #gtchat and the transcript which includes many links to helpful resources has been created on Storify at http://sfy.co/iG6f
A write-up of the session will appear on the #gtchat blog soon and we can continue the discussion on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/#!/gtchatmod?fref=ts
