Sight words... do they catch up???
Feeling like 'mom of the year' tonight (sarcasm)...
my dh is out of town this week so I took over doing his sight words with my ds. His teacher rates him well below where he should be for sight words which surprised me since my dh says he does great and knows them all. DS reads pretty well but his teacher says that is mostly due to his drawing clues from the pictures. Imagine my surprise when my ds barely new 10 sight words out of about 75! I have always handled everything to do with his doctors, therapies, math, reading... the only thing I left for dh was SIGHT WORDS! GRRRR - I am so pissed right now! It's the end of Kindergarten and he does not even know 1/3 of his sight words.
am I over-reacting? He has only begun therapy barely 3 months ago. He is 6, is there an age where they start to catch up?
thanks for letting me vent, I am just so pissed that something we are doing (or NOT doing) could be impacting his learning.
