Hi...! I work with a student whose letter-sound correspondence is extremely poor. I work with him almost every morning for about half an hour, and he is making progress in that he recognizes more whole words, he doesn't get as frustrated as he used to, and he approached the whole learning process with a much better attitude. However...he still seems to have absolutely no phonemic awareness or letter-sound correspondence. What tricks do people use? :help: This student is repeating first grade, he is eight (Nov. birthday). When we do his sight words, there are some words that he just never gets correct. For example, the word there. He also has the words now and your. Once he's gotten now and/or your correct, he will then guess that word for all of the other words...regardless of the word on the card. I repeatedly tell him to look at the first letter, to get his mouth ready, etc etc...but it doesn't seem to be working.
