Two bloody word searches, find the topic words. (WW2) What is the point? What will she not learn if I do it for her?

How old is she? If it's Secondary YABU. grin

Yr 5. She already did 20 sentences about something else.

Just do it then. Get it out of the way. smile

I would do it, as long as she understands the words it doesn't really matter if she can find them in a wordsearch or not

Why can't she do it?confused
I'm not a great believer in homework for primary aged children, but mine usually do it. If I think it's totally pointless, then they just don't do it. I don't really see the point of me doing it for them.

I have a dyslexic DD and a dyspraxic DS.

I bloody hate it when they get word searches for homework, and I always "help".

You should have guidelines for how long she's supposed to spend on homework. If she's already spent the time doing the sentences, write a note to that effect to the teacher. Probably a good idea to make sure she is familiar with the words even if she doesn't have time to do the word search.

I wouldn't do it. Put a note in her homework book explaining exactly why she did not do it.
Nobody benefits from you doing it for her.

I'd do it, but only because I love wordsearches.

But sending it in not done will just cause a load of problems. It's a wordsearch. It's Year 5. Life's too short.

Go for it! She'll also learn that you care enough to help her.

freddiefrog Thu 18-Oct-12 19:38:28

I'd do it, I love doing word searches

I would normally get her to do it but it's a really busy week, plus it gets my goat ax I can see no real learning benefit whatsoever.
