I recently started tutoring a brother of a friend of mine and would like some input from a second grade teacher. The boy is in first grade, transitioning into second. He is very behind in his reading and only a bit behind in math. He knows: - All the letters EXCEPT for "w" and "y" - Some sight words (I, am, the, she, etc.) - Can count to 20-30 - Knows the base sound of all letters except w,y - Can sometimes tell time We don't think he has a learning disability but his mother is getting him tested this summer. I want to get him at least caught up to the 1st grade by the end of summer, but I may be stretching it. What do you teachers think is the MOST important to work with before receiving children from the first grade.
