My DS, is in 2nd grade. He is on the Honor Roll and likes school okay. He is exhausted when he gets home from school and we just found out he needs bi-foculs because he is crossing his eyes when he reads. He's had glasses for a couple of years. He has homework every night, 20 minutes of reading, answer a question about what he read and his spelling homework. Usually takes him around 45 minutes to an hour to do it. He doesn't mind reading but at the end of the day he is just so tired and ready to just relax.
Okay, now my question.
What if I were to read to him for that 20 minutes and then have him answer the question? I think that is still in the spirit of reading comprehension. If you were his teacher would you be upset?
I would ask his teacher but I have not gotten a response to the last few emails I've sent her and I am very frustrated. I am going to bring it up the lack of responses at the parent/teacher conferences in a couple of weeks. That and at this point, I feel I need to do what is best for him and I hate that our evenings are so stressful.
