I reminded SnakeMaster this afternoon that he needs extra practice with his multiplication facts. After 25 minutes he reported back to me that he had indeed been practicing. He had looked through his flash cards on his own for 15 minutes, and then his oldest brother had quizzed him for 10 minutes. MusicMan would ask him a multiplication problem and SnakeMaster would answer; if he got it wrong, MM would snap a rubber band at him. SM reported only getting 2 rubber bands shot at him in 10 minutes.
I think they’re on to something…
Aversion to the wrong answer therapy. I love it!
Just don’t ever let either of them have a taser. 😉
LOL too funny.. and a perfect post title! 🙂
That reminds me of Cheaper By the Dozen, where the dad taught them to touch-type by hitting them on the head with a pencil when they messed up.
LOL! They may put out an eye, but at least they’ll know their multiplication facts!
LOL…too funny. Don’t get any other weapons I tell ya LOL 🙂
Sometimes I wish that would be an acceptable form of reinforcement in my profession…;-D
see? that is why i think its sad that nick is an only child!!
Too funny! Would MusicMan work homework practice at my house for me??? 😀
haha! i should have “helped” my sister more with her homework, i didn’t realize how fun for ME it could have been 🙂
YAY for SnakeMaster!!! My kids used to play multiplication games in the CAR … all.the.time! Krysti hated it because she’s the one that’s not so “mathy”… the boys were QUICK!
