My son is in year 2. His teacher spoke to me yesterday and said she tested him on his sight words and he only had 6 wrong out of 600 but he did a really good job on the 6 he had wrong. She said that these words took him to the end of year 4 and she would get back to me about how she could extend him. Last night she emailed me to say that she spoke with the head of junior school and they have suggested that my son spells all the words as they cant give him above year 4 work. My hubby and I had a bit of a laugh as we had thought when she tested him on the sight words she did a spelling test as we knew our son can spell these words. Ever since he had sight words come home we have asked him to spell them as we knew he could read them, he hated spelling them as he already knew how to spell them, but we had to do something. I let the teacher know this morning that our son can pretty much spell all the words on this list but to make it fun for him I had him type them out instead of writing them down. He was happy to do 50 last night and got them all correct, its actually frustrating for him to spell these words over and over but he did enjoy typing them. the teacher said she did realise that our son could spell most of the words but she had to extend him and that was all they came up with. Does anyone have any ideas that I can suggest to the teacher to help our son so he isnt board and frustrated.
