I got a new student Thursday who is really underperforming. He does not know how to hold a pencil, can not write ANY letter including his name, randomly scribbles when coloring, doesnt know colors or letters, etc. His mother has also yet to send him with a backpack to school so I havent even been able to send home any letters or anything. I've been trying to work on him with at least being able to write his name and so far I'm making no progress. Any tips for a student who is performing like this? Ive already made the guidance counselor and principal aware but I just need some ideas on what to do with him NOW because he can not do any of the work we are doing at this point in the year.
