My dd is in 1st grade, she is a social butterfly she is good with Math and doesn't mind writing a story . The problem is apparently she is to slow when it comes to reading in 1st grade. Her DRA test for Jan. wasn't up to par.'If her scores are not up in May for it's test she will go to summer school and stay back. I personally don't think it's that bad, maybe not up to the standard level so I will work with her in any way I can. As of today I decided(with her father) no T.V. I stayed back in 1st grade & it wasn't good. I watched the friends I had started making in Nursery school all go on ahead of me. (that's not what this is about) I want to help her succeed in life & I would like to know if any mothers have been through this & did some exercises to bring their child up & out of the situation. Like getting them to want to read more. " HELP PLEASE ", that's all I'm looking for.
