In Reply to: SIX year old will not read posted by Courtney on March 27, 2004 at 19:50:14:
: I can not seem to get my 6 year old into doing math or reading he is falling way behind the other kids. I have bought all the name brand stuff and I have tried everything I know to make it fun. PLEASE HELP ME
I had the same problem with my daughter last yr, She was way behind in school work. We tried almost everything to get her to read, write and do maths.. Then in sept she got a new teacher and i spoke to her and asked her to be strict on my daughter, IE if she did no work in class then make her do it in her breaks and keep her in at lunch time, The teacher used this medthod and it worked!!! My daughter hated the fact that she couldnt go out and play with her friends and got down to doing some school work.
Her reading has improved so much an her writing and maths her grades are very good now too.
Also my daughter has a special needs teacher once a week for a hour to help her out, and to catch up on her peers.
Shes 7 now and doing great!
