He's really, really struggling with sight words and we've just kindof putting things on hold for now. We're reading aloud. We talked all day about solar and electric cars. We're doing the LeapFrog pens and watching Meet the Sightwords and just trying to keep our focus on what's truly important.
Now we have to figure out what to do. Same actions, same results--right? If he does the map a third time, will he be able to pass the test? Does he just need repetition or can he truly not learn in that way? I don't know!
He doesn't mind playing the little computer games and we make the tests no-big-deal so he wasn't upset about failing (if he even realized he did). However, I'm not sure he'd want to do the exact same lessons a third time. We'll figure it out, I suppose!!
Reading Eggs Progress Report for Timothy
Your child has made good progress in Reading Eggs. Timothy has finished another ten lessons.
Timothy has just completed the Theme Park 1 Quiz at the end of Map 9.
Timothy did not pass the quiz. Each quiz is a test of the content and skills covered in the last 10 lessons. To make real progress in reading, students need to be able to recall what they have learned. Our young Eggsplorers need to pass the quiz to progress to the next map.
We recommend that your child repeats all the lessons in this map.
For greater improvements in reading ability, we also suggest reading the books in the Reading Eggs bookpacks. The more children read the more chance they have of building skills and fluency. Children can also practise their reading and writing by completing the matching lessons in the Reading Eggs Activity books.
