I've had a student out for over a week now and we've moved into new territory in all subjects. This child is very well-behaved, but she isn't really one where I could tell her what pages we've covered in her (X) book and then she'd be good to go with what's going on after reading them on her own. What do you tend to do in situations such as this? Assign the reading at home and tell the parents about it, hoping they will help the child at home? Exclude the child from the in-class assignments, but still give the homework? It might sound selfish, but I simply do not have time in the day to catch this girl up with all of the work that she has missed. I don't want her to be completely lost either!
