Kindergardener struggling ~ How to help her? Anyone use ABCmouse?
My daughter is in kindergarden. She was in head start last year and a part time pre school before that. However, when I attempted to teach her at home, letters, numbers, colors, etc, she resisted. She loved learning from outsiders like her teachers but refused to pay attention for me. So, now that she is in Kindergarden she is playing catch up. She is finally on target with her letters and writing, numbers, etc. But, her reading is way behind. She should know about 30 sight words according to the teacher but she doesn't. One big issue is we live in a small town where none of the kids go to school on Fridays but Kindergarden is only half a day. So, the teacher has the same standards to teach but less than half the time to do it in as other schools. The state won't fund our school having a full day kindergarden class. I really want my daughter to make it to 1st grade next year but I am not opposed to holding her back if she needs it. Any ideas on helping her? The school has tested her and she isn't learning disabled or slow. She is just playing catch up. She has a strong desire to learn. I want to work with her at home. Anyone use ABCmouse or something similar? ANY suggestions are welcome! Thank you!
