I teach 2nd and I have a student who reads on a kindergarten level. She is also very slow to start work and if I am going over an whole group assignment where I have the students answer orally then write the answer down she usually wont write anything. I will give directions two or three times and she will say "what are we doing"? I cannot sit by her every minute of the day and hold her hand through everything. I think she should have been retained in first grade. She went to another school last year so I cant ask the teacher how she did last year. She goes to early intervention twice a week but so far it is not helping and she is missing class time for this. Any suggestions on how I can help her or get her to be more focused?
