My DS (yr 3) is taking a very long time to formulate his ideas and put them onto paper. This is letting him down because he is not putting his great 'wow' words (shudder! I think that means adjectives?), vocab and punctuation down on paper and therefore getting very low marks.
He does seem to have very complicated ideas and - at home - I encourage him to simplify them when we're doing writing together - but I can't be there in the classroom. Can anyone help me, help him. The teacher simply puts a dot about half way down the page and encourages him to get to it, with mixed results.
I'm feeling a bit desperate because this has been going on for a year and a half now with 2 different teachers and I'm at hair-pulling-out stage, so and advice/ suggestions would be very welcome.
