Hi, I'm a junior high/ fourth grade (yes, sounds weird!) reading specialist. I taught fourth grade self contained for 16 years, but.... I'm posting here as a mom of a second grader. I'm well acquainted with appropriate strategies for inattentive behavior among fourth grade (and older) students. What things are appropriate to do with second graders? At home during homework time, I set a kitchen timer for small chunks. I give homework breaks (ex.: write 3 sentences and do five jumping jacks, she works well for silly stuff!). What's appropriate to suggest for her to do at school? I haven't gotten any suggestions from her teacher and I feel like I need to try to offer my daughter some tips to try to work better while she's at school. THANKS!!
