mommymilkies Posted September 19, 2012 Share Posted September 19, 2012 My dd has had some reading issues for awhile. There was a thread a bit back about it, but the school district evaluated her, said she doesn't have auditory issues (based on her score on earobics), she can not rhyme and needs reading help, but that they wouldn't help us because her scores were not "low enough", though she got 0s on many of the tests but her math score was good. So anyway, she's been working on Apples & Pears and Dancing bears and has been making progress. But the kid can not understand rhyming. If I say "shoe", she can tell me "shot" starts the same. But if I ask her to rhyme cat, she can not. Not with examples or help. Not on paper, the board, or orally. My 4 yo can easily rhyme them. She can read the Bob books and CVC words, but is behind whe she is "supposed to be" for spelling and reading compared to other beginning 2nd graders. The rhyming bothers me, though. Is this as abnormal as I think? The school thought so, and my other kids all did/can before her age (8 next month). I just don't know what to do. We've spent hundreds trying to figure this out and I don't have any more money to throw at figuring this out! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
