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?

Angela I use the letter arch from the Florida Reading Research site. We first practice matching letter to a letter we say in the alphabet song. Then, I hold up random letter cards for the students to locate on the arch. They can use the alphabet song to help them find the letter. This has helped to scaffold some of my students.
