my son stared school last year he had just turned 5 two weeks ,befoe school stared i thought he was more then ready to start. As he went though last year in kindy i was alway getting called up by the teacher to come in for a interview an every time it was the same thing my son was not focused, not paying attention. i did not know what to do as it was always a challange to get him to do homework. Now he is in year one an he is on the bottom of the class having to be taking out of class with another teacher to catch up on reading an sight words, dont get me wrong he is getting better but im not sure if i should keep him in year 1 next year or just leave him to go to year two.. i just dont want him falling too far behind that it is going to be to hard for him to get to the leavel his ment to be at. i have a daughter who is 5 an going to school next year as she was 5 to late to go this year an she loves pre school asways wanting to do my sons homework for him (which i tell her no its his work) i really belive that my daughter is at the same leavel as my son. im really stuck on what to do.
