Well Mr Jamieson will give 3 extra sessions a week to Daniel along with some of his friends. Two will be learning sight words, decoding skills, fluency practice and shared reading. The third will be maths and will cover number sense, numeration and story problems. He will use hands on toys and aids to help him.
Ohh I see.
So what can we do together to help him?
Ms Wallace will give Daniel a goal planning sheet and she will check with him every Friday to see how he has done.
What can we do?
I was getting to that....
Well you can read to him at home. Sound out words in a book. Play a game where he has to find a word starting with the same letter as another you have pointed out. For maths you can play guess the number... show him a number of objects and take some away, get him to guess how many are left. You could use kitchen items or anything for that matter
Really, should we be worried?
Mindful, not worried. We have some ideas we hope you can help us with so that we can help Daniel together.
