DS started off the beginning of the year great. In the past several
weeks he has been struggling with math. They take a math test where the
have 5min to complete 50 addition problems. At first he was doing fine
but a few weeks ago his test scores started to go way down. One week he
only answered 9 questions in 5min. The next week he only answered 4. All
of the questions he answered were correct. We work on this at home and
he always does great. His teacher said she knows he knows the answers.
He is also having a similar problem in reading now.
She said she knows he knows the answers but when he is supposed to be working he is zoning out. When I asked him about it he said he was trying to think of the answer. His teacher said she would talk to the other first grade teachers for ideas because she doesn't have any.
I'm really confused and at a loss. I'm not sure what the issue is so I'm really not sure what to do about it. Does anyone have any ideas or input?
