I am having trouble with my daughter's reading level. After the first quarter grades came out, she was reading at the level she should be at, but when I received her 2nd quarter report card, she went back a level. What the heck? I get frustrated a bit with her when she is reading to me because she sounds every single letter out in a word but still has trouble saying the word. She also does not remember rules (i.e. ea sounds like ee) so it gives her a hard time. I try to be patient but it becomes very very difficult, especially when I tell her a rule or she reads a word and she forgets almost immediately.
Her teacher has noticed this but has not said anything except for small notes on classwork saying "Do over" or "study". She comes home with 40% on quizzes that involve filling in the blank. I have spoken with her teacher because I was out of ideas and she told me that the reading teacher is going to try a different approach with her. But I am beginning to worry that she may not be passed to 2nd grade since there is less than half a year to go.
Any teachers out there? What should I do? Tutoring? Please help.
