    I have a couple of kids who need one-to-one help. Both have trouble focussing on words and decoding. Can anyone suggest what has worked for them one on one? Reading passages? Readers? Word lists? Word families? I would like to find a few minutes every day (if possible!!) to spend with them to get them past the hump.

    :) :thanks:

    A sight word list that they try to master that can be sent home as well.

    Books that have been read aloud by an adult multiple times.

    Reading books with lots of pictures.

    Do they know all the letter sounds with automaticity?

    Does your school have volunteers? At the University I attend there is a program for students who want to volunteer at local schools and help the kids with reading and math.

    Yes, that is their one strength.


    hzminda, volunteers scare me... will they show up? Will they be patient with the kids? Will they just give them the answers? :unsure:

    No. I'll have to hunt that one up!
