October 13 – 17, 2016 Evening & Weekend
For the evening/weekend training, the specific times will be:
2. Poor word recognition Slow to learn words seen frequently, forgetting words seen many times, difficulty learning sight words (this is a very common problem).
3. Weakness sounding out words Can’t easily learn and apply decoding skills. Tries to guess at words or use context clues. Weak at sounding out words with 2, 3 and 4 syllables (by 3rd or 4th grade).
4. Poor spelling, both on tests and in written compositions Frequent misspellings, guesses.
5. Slow, halting reading (poor fluency) Must reread to understand.
6. Weak reading comprehension Can’t recognize words in a passage or sound out important words; so slow and halting, she can’t recall what’s been read. Has trouble finishing tests.
7. Excessive time spent on homework Parents may report trouble with assignments.
8. Self-esteem issues Sees himself or herself as “stupid”; is “down” about school, cries easily, avoids reading, appears not to care, easily frustrated when reading.
