I am a first grade teacher and I am having trouble getting one little boy to finish all of his work in a timely matter. He does struggle to focus and is very young minded. My question is this, when do you you say enough and mark him for what he has? I need to document that this is happening so I have another argument for his retention.(if it comes down to that) so what is a significant time frame? He does miss some recess every day to try and complete his work. I have sent work home but unfotuatly during assessments I can't do this. The poor guy just cant handle the work.
