My son is in kindergarten and having a hell of a time doing his homework at home. He's great with math but when it comes to reading and writing he gives up. He won't sound out words, and when he does he won't blend it together and say the right word. Tonight it was the word "was" he sounded it out, then when I told him to put the sounds together he said "where", "what" and "when". He's done this before with other words, actually every week he has this issue with at least one word on his "word wall" from school. One week it was the word "on" he literally said every 2 letter word EXCEPT on! Even after sounding it out. And all I hear from him is "I can't", "I don't know how" or the famous one "i'm thinking" this normally comes after he's been looking around the room and I tell him to say it out loud, or sound it out loud. I'm seriously at a loss, I don't know what to do. I've walked away and given him a few minutes to re group himself, I've moved on to something else and came back, I emailed his teacher also. (still waiting on a reply, I emailed her before posting this) The last time we had a parent-teacher conference I asked her about it and she said he's doing great in class and never has an issue with his words. So I don't know what I'm doing wrong, and what I can do to fix this problem with out losing my mind. At this point I'm so ready to call it quits, I just can't do it any more. Help???
