EthiopianFood Posted May 26, 2009 Share Posted May 26, 2009 My niece is public schooled (doesn't live with me), and she struggles in math (likely a difficulty with abstract concepts, due to some level of FASD). She also loses a considerable about of reading ability over the summer, despite reading for fun somewhat regularly, to the point of needing intensive tutoring/pull-out classes to catch up (yet she is always caught up by the end of the summer). This summer, I refuse to sit by and do nothing (she is in 3rd grade, almost 9 yo). I want to tutor her using MUS Foundations, and find something to use to keep her up with her reading skills (like I said, she does read for fun, but still loses half of her reading fluency), suggestions welcome. How do I tell her I will be doing this with her without making her feel stupid or punished? I have yet to ask her how she feels she's doing in school, but she recently changed the subject immediately when I asked how school was going, and she was aware of a low test score in the fall, and said she "hated herself" over it.
