Perhaps he is scared of his teacher. My ds was like that last year in kindergarten and I had his teacher switched and he was fine!

I'm having a hard time following your post, but if I was in your place, I would set up a parent/teacher meeting ASAP to find out why his failing and what can be done to improve the situation. Try writing some questions and concerns down before the meeting, and then bring that same paper to take notes on.

If you--yourself--are uncomfortable with the teacher, see if a school counselor or principal could sit in the meeting too.

My son is small for his age, and he was never babied or treated differently for it. I'm confused about what you are trying to say at the end of your post.

I agree with Barbara. I would also recommend get him a tutor or find out if his school offer free tutoring.  It is never too late to get your son in the right track . The first step is step up a meeting with teacher. Ask your son teacher for feedback on ways he can improve on his grades, find out what his weakness is and help him.............

I would get him a tutor for more one on one teaching as well as talk to his teacher about things.  I am in constant communication with dd's teacher .  She is in 1st grade and we email back and forth.
