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.
If a student is doing a worksheet of 40 problems all about the order of operations, and the student has a rule confused, then every problem will be missed. But the bigger concern is that the mistake just got practiced 40 times. It just became ingrained in that student has mind to forever cause trouble unless it can be corrected. I have had many high school Algebra students enter class thinking they know the correct order of operations, but we quickly learn that something is wrong. Digging a little deeper, we discover that they learned the order of operations incorrectly, although they will swear they are doing what they were taught. In reality, they have spent the previous couple of years practicing incorrectly. Their answers got marked wrong but no one took the time to find out why. And the damaged was never repaired.
