Could this be dyslexia or laziness?

DS just started doing this, this week. He usually doesn't have issues and he is actually one of the smartest in his class (per his teachers). He is also one of the youngest. He will be 5 in July.

I have added some pictures of what he's been doing. He brought me a piece of paper last night from my moms calculator and I started going over them with him. He kept saying a few of them backwards. 82 was 28. 46 was 64.

I don't know if maybe he's being lazy or distracted or if this is something I should watch.

This is what my son's former kindergarten teacher said, keep an eye on it. Kids can go through phases where they write weird. If it continues to the age of 6/7 then they would investigate what the problem was.

I would talk to the teacher and see what they think. If it is dylexia ts better to diagnosis it now, rather than later in life.

Even if he's never done this before?

Probably neither.  That's totally normal for that age.

She hasn't said anything to me so far. I'm going to ask her when they go back to school from Spring Break.
