My 6 yr old, gonna be 7 in 2 weeks, in 1st grade has Journals they are to write. They are only 3 sentences long and you must include a picture. The teacher asks that parents let them do it independently. We can help with making sure its neat and we can help with punctuation, but everything else, they want the kids to do on their own. Well my son has ADHD and always had a developmental delay. He still after practicing over and over, does not know how to properly write some letters. If he doesn't know how to spell a word, he refuses to write it unless i tell him how too. We were at it for a hr to write 3 sentences and still couldn't complete it because everything he wrote was just letters put together that made no sense at all. He also puts no thought into the sentences. His topic today was..Yesterday, I....He wanted to write..Yesterday, I played cars. I played trains. I played with my dog Marley..not sure if all that is acceptable..I am really lost..I know others are more advanced them him, and I think i am expecting too much from him..however, he needs to learn these things. I have been a single mom dealing with all this alone and my patience is running so low, I don't know what else I can do to help. Any suggestions please would be so greatly appreciated.
