Plateau Mama Posted October 30, 2012 Share Posted October 30, 2012 (edited) My son is in 5th grade. I think he needs to go back and do phonics or something. But what? He doesn't understand basic things like blends. Part of the problem is he refuses to put anything to memory and prefers to relearn it every. single. day. I am so frustrated. We use Sequential Spelling, which he loves and he had improved his spelling alot. The problem is on the 4th day he's still spelling the same words wrong. Every day I explain to him what the rule or pattern is and the next day he can't remember. I know he's just throwing things on paper because the words that he misspells are spelled totally different each day. What should I do with him? ETA: He's a very good reader with good comprehension. I really think it's partly a processing problem and partly an attitude problem. When he sees the word he knows what it is, but have him spell it, and he can't output the information. He has difficulty copying words with correct spelling. Edited October 30, 2012 by nicolepa Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
