Third Six Weeks Report
                                April 15 - May 31, 1996
                                         Fifth Grade
     T___ is learning how to buckle down, enjoy himself, and experience a job well done.  A far cry from before.
     I'm giving him many more math problems to work to get his speed and endurance up.  At this point, it is time to just practice multiplication, division, fractions, and decimals.  Enough is enough, though.  So, I'm skipping to a seventh-grade book when he finishes this one.  He's half-way through.
     I got a sixth-grade Bob Jones reader and worktext T___ uses readily enough.  I have an eighth-grade A Beka reader, but no worktext, he reads out of, too.  He still prefers Clue books or car magazines, but he's learning to read less-exciting material.
     We'll have to watch Mondays and days after holidays. School after breaks in the routine seems to be especially bad behavior-wise.  I'll try to ease T___ into it.
     For summer, I plan on T___ each week doing a couple of pages of math (odds or evens) from My Seventh-Grade Super Workbook, a couple of pages of the exercises in the back of his English book, and a page in his journal.
