I have a 2nd grader who is far below grade level in everything. Yesterday I gave him his mCLASS (running record, basically) assessment. He's very low, so I started with a print concepts assessment. I pointed to a period on the page and asked him what that was called. He couldn't tell me. I said, "This is a period, it tells the reader that's the end of the sentence." Then I asked him to point to another period on the page. Without a moment's hesitation he points to a mole on his arm and says, "right here!" :lol::lol::lol: I have my work cut out for me, that's for sure!
