My DD Mallory is 7 and in the 2nd grade. They are expected to read 67 WPM but she is only reading 24 WPM. Her teacher said it is weird because she is the top speller in her class she knows her sight words she knows all the sounds she knows how to read but she just reads at her own pace and the school wants her to be at 54 WPM by January.
So how the heck can she read 30 WPM in 2 months and how can you get a child to read faster???
We practice reading nightly and she goes to an after school program for reading and spelling tutoring every Monday and Wednesday until 5:30 pm
Any advice would be grately apprciated
