So Dominic has this project where he has to collect 15 different specimens of local tree leaves and press them and label them in an album. It was due last Friday. He told us he had finished it, and it was at school. He told his teacher that he had finished it, and it was at home. I had a meeting with his teachers today and he didn’t turn it in*. I asked him about it tonight and he said he didn’t know where it was. I helped him look and I found it. Of the 15 leaves, he had 7. None were labeled. So I sent him out to find more leaves in our yard and the neighbors’ yards, and now he has the 15 he needs, but 8 of them are not pressed. At school they were using a press that took a week to make the leaves flat and dry. He has to have this turned in tomorrow.
Any suggestions? Can they be ironed?
*the meeting was step 1 in trying to get a 504 plan in place–he’s severely ADHD and needs some sort of intervention with regards to school. This is just another example of a pattern we’ve seen for years now.
