Since thecheating was on spelling words, have him write each of the words 10 times. (tell him – since he apparently needed to cheat to be able to spell the words). And grounded from tv tonight
If you really want ot get mean, you can have him pull weeds from your garden or spend 15 mins picking up dog poop (if you have a dog and a backyard).
My son HATES the punishments I think up for him.
