Sprite on the subject of Homework!


Sprite really dislikes homework and makes up elaborate excuses to avoid doing it!

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!

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
