    K teacher

    A kindergarten student transferred into my class at the
    beginning of Feb. from another school in the district. He
    knew 37 letters and 7 sounds which is about the same
    as he knew in Oct. according to a district wide
    assessment that he took. Since then we have worked
    with him every day to learn the letters and sounds but I
    assessed him today and he now knows fewer letters but
    about 5 more sounds. He has trouble matching
    magnetic letters to an alphabet chart and is inconsistent
    with the letters he can name.

    I am a very experienced teacher but this is the first time
    I've had a child make so little progress. Any ideas or
    suggestions?
