My daughter is in 3rd year at school, Shes almost 7.....
When she first started the school the teachers were very worried about her, They said she had problems getting words out and recommened speech therphy. Then they asked me to come in again saying that she would need special needs to help with school work 1 on 1 teaching. After a year of speech therphy i went to see the woman, she said that there was nothing wrong with my daughters speech and that shes a happy bright child.
Last year was very hard for me, I just had a new baby we just moved blah blah, This ment i could not sit with my daughter and help with homework etc.
Then before she broke up from the summer hoildays i got her school report. It said that the whole year she was in hes class she never compleated one bit of work. But finished all her work with the special needs teacher...
Im getting very frustrated now!! My daughter can only read and spell words that the 5 yr olds are learning now at her school. She can not write a sentance she can only read very very simple books. My nephew is her age aswell knows how to read write etc.
I cant help but think my daughter is thick!
She went back to school last week and i said to her new teacher that if she dont finish her work of in class that she is to bring it home and ill make sure she does it, The teacher also said that she will keep her in at lunch times too. My DH said to me that we should buy books for her to start learning spellings, reading and writing and make her do this for 1 hour each night intill she catches up with the rest of her class.
Do you think im being too strict on her?
Just to let you know theres nothing wrong with her mentaly or physicly, and she dont have behavour problems, Shes a normaly little girl who is refusing to work in a class room.
Thanks for any help
