I am getting a new students on Monday. His grandma is getting custody of him because his mother could not care for him and was not taking him to school. There are officially 40 school days left for us. I know I am making assumptions before I meet this little guy, but I'm afraid he is going to be way behind what our class is doing and I will not be able to catch him up in two months. Have you ever gotten a student at the end of the school year that was really behind? How did you catch them up? I think there was another thread like this, but it was geared toward middle/high school and I teach kindergarten.
