Hi guys. Thanks for replying to my post below for early elem teachers!
I am hoping to get some ideas on ways that I can increase the focus of my son in school. I am always being told how bright and smart he is, and I know that's true, but I will get tests back from school where he has obviously not read the directions or something and he will have the wrong answer. Example: he missed an entire section of a test that was _______ number _______ and he was supposed to count by 2s the number before and after. He is more than capable of doing that - no struggles in math whatsoever, but he counted by 1s, instead and got them ALL wrong. It's so frustrating and I'm afraid that he's going to get discouraged by his grades and then not feel like trying his best is worth it.
So, I'm wondering if anyone has any advice or ways that he can practice his focus.
