finally! i brought my homework from Z's class in this morning; i was shocked to find his teacher in the classroom. i put the stack of math lessons on the counter & she asked "this is the whole book?"
"yes, that's all of it" [she said we could do chapters, but i'd rather get it done & back to her so i don't have it looming over my head]
Z was still there, so i asked him to go to the playground so i could speak with teach some. i told her once she had spent some time with him, because we came from a different school district, i was very concerned about where he fell in comparison to his classmates.
teach said she had done some evaluations last week already & could tell me he was low. [surprise] however, this school is nothing like the old school: he's already going mon-thurs to a reading lab [YESSSSS!!!], she's changed the seating arrangement so he sits next to one of the best readers in class so a peer can help him & she also said there's a group of slow readers in the class that she spends extra time with [bonus, he's not at the bottom of the barrel by himself].
the other thing she mentioned is he has trouble focusing. yeah, i know but i don't know what to do about it....i find it infuriating as well.
