Just out of curiosity, what are your kid's favorite and least favorite subjects? I just had to ask my 3rd grader that question for some IEP paperwork and he said his favorite was a tie between math & science and his least favortie was writing.
I'm going to ask my 7th grader when he gets home what his are... I'm going to guess that Science is his favorite and Math is his least favorite so we'll see if I'm correct. His favorites always seem greatly influenced by the teacher. If he loves the teacher, the subject he or she teaches will become his favorite and vice versa.
