thanks indigobell. I think this is half the reason why homework is becoming so impossible to get him to do. Hes not fluent with his sounds yet either. Knows them all but slow processing them and gets muddled. Taking both into consideration, its too much for him. I was wondering was i missing something! it just doesnt make sense to me. Going to see teacher on Wednesday when Im off
This year I've agreed with the teacher that we'll do the hornet literacy primer instead of spelling lists. You could bring in bear necessities and ask the teacher if you could do that with DS instead of spellings.
Then during the spelling test DD goes out with the TA and reads with her.
Previous years we had easy lists - and they were a total waste of valuable time. (and I mean very easy lists. 'the', 'was' etc)
