I have a couple of kids in my class this year that have been retained. Luckily, I had them both in my Title 1 reading group last year (which is why theyre being held back) so I know their personalities. They struggle in Reading. Friday we had a meeting with one of the boy's parents because he is in the process of being tested for ADHD and his parents really did not want him being held back. His dad kept saying that he would be bored and he would be in the office all the time because he'd be causing problems. Of course the whole time Im thinking in my head that this child will "think" he is bored because he's heard daddy say that he will be. Thanks a lot DAD! Anyway, his teacher from last year said that he was pretty good in Math and thats what the dad said he'd be bored with. I dont doubt that he's good in it and probably remembers all of the skills, but Im not sure that I want to exclude him totally from the lessons and the work the rest of the class is doing. We use Saxon Math, and I was just wondering if anyone has any ideas on what I can have him do so that he wont be "bored". I dont want to just give him worksheets all the time because I dont want to give him busy work. I have some games on the computer he can do, but then I run into the other kids asking why he gets to play on the computer all the time. What are your suggestions?
