How do You Get Your Child to do Book Reports?
My daughter is great at reading and loves reading. The problem is that she doesn't like to do the book reports. Her teacher said she will be assigned at least 2 a marking period, but then I find out she only handed 1 in during the last 2 marking periods.
She had a biography due and was given 2 weeks to do it. I couldn't get her to focus and do it, she did all of it the night before. She finished it only because I made her and she could do nothing until it was done!
Book reports are boring and they take the joy out of reading. OK Not the best answer, especially for a former teacher to give. Since your daughter enjoys reading so much I will guess that she considers book reports to be boring and a waste of her precious reading time. Maybe she would respond to offers of new books or a trip to the library? Seriously, I remember slamming out horrible book reports because I had a great book waiting to be read. I thought the book reports got in the way of the joy of reading.
In order my kid to his book reports, I told him that I am not always there with him. I might pass away (God forbid!) so he should learn how to be independent in case nobody is there to assist him. I always encourage him that he is a bright boy and I know that he will do great and can fulfill his dreams if he will do his best. I make him understand that if he will do good with his education then he can have a bright future.
