|that is hand over hand printing|
The directions as you can see are for her to use the first three words in a sentence. Malia has no concept of what that means. Do typical grade ones have this skill? This is the first week they are getting down to business as the first two were setting the routine etc.
I know that in this age of technology that adaptations can be made for the child's lack of scribing ability however she should have the skill unless of course we are uncovering a learning disability? Perhaps I have failed the child in my choice of preschool education leaving her grossly unprepared for grade one?
This is new ground for me people. I have three other kids that read but at this age their programs were significantly modified and in a specialized setting. This is the real deal.
In doing the homework tonight I discovered I am not set up for her to be successful positioning wise to compensate for her vision. I think it is easily rectified but in watching her attempt to do some printing and reading it was a struggle as she couldn't see what she needed to in order to copy etc. She needs to nearly put her eyeball on what she is reading.
Parent teacher interviews are this Friday. It should be a rousing good time for all concerned. I'm showing up drunk....
