ps. we are still "negotiating" the repetition of the pasuk. she thinks that just reading it on the white board should be enough. i want her to do it again. she left the room, came back, tried sooo hard not to yell, and ended up losing her temper and storming off. i'm holding firm, though. i think a review of a pasuk with pretty easy words that she had a lot of trouble with is not too much to ask.
and i wanted to add that i think that she had trouble today because of the overload from yesterday, causing her to come into today feeling as though chumash was too heavy to bear.
another example of how it's not the work itself; it is the thought of the work that makes it too much.
