I should have known better, but I did not check on her at the beginning and then I got busy. So, sometime later, she brought me 50 sentences of "I will not disobey my parents again." She had just practiced misspelling "again" as "agent" -- 50 times! I am not certain that we ever really got that fixed. This issue of NOT practicing mistakes is extremely important. Parents should not give worksheets as busy work and teachers should only use them if you are going to have a non-math teacher substitute. White boards with supervision are always a better way to practice skills. If you need some time to do chores, your child will get much more benefit by helping you with the chores. And maybe you can work in a little discussion of numbers or counting while you do chores together.
In another article, I will be explaining how to fix practiced mistakes; but I assure you that it is not quick and it is not easy. And it certainly does not involve another worksheet! A much better option is for the mistake to never get practiced. Skill and drill worksheets can only avoid this trouble if someone is standing over the student with rapt attention on every answer to be written. As soon as a mistake is made, the reason for the mistake must be identified, and the correct method needs to be practiced right then and there several times. And then again in about 10 minutes, and then checked again before class is over.
