DD is writing things like 'She live's in a house' and has been taught that the plural of potato is potato's! I am getting really pissed off!

My limited experience of teaching involved trying to teach humanities to secondary age children who weren't just functionally illiterate; they couldn't bloody read at all.

Commas and apostrophes were the least of their worries.

Presumably pointeshoes would say that you should just leave them to facilitate their own learning to read, and the reason why they can't read is that they simply haven't been facilitated for long enough.
