Bright 2nd grader does not finish his work
I have already been told that my son does not complete his work and has difficult time staying on task. I know he can do the work if not harder than whats offered in grade 2 because we always do activity books after school and he has no problems at all. The only problem that I have noticed is his writing. He does not hold the pen correctly and does not write neatly. He is very advanced reader and he seems to read more difficult books than the grade 3 kids (its a split grade 2/3). Even though he can do the work, he can not show it to the teacher. I am worried about future grades! Will his writing improve on its own with time and practice? I am worried that his reading level does not match his writing level. Does anybody have any similar stories or advices? Please let me know.
