Need help with son's reading
I desparately need help with my son and his reading!! He hates to read and virtually nothing I do can encourage him. He loves (and excels) in Math, Science, & Spelling, but his Reading grade is sinking fast! I realize he may never excel at reading, but he has to get through school. What can I do to help him? His school participates in the Accelerated Reader program, and requires him to get a certain amount of points; it is a battle every quarter to get his. We have tried taking away TV time, rewarding him, reading aloud, discussing the book as he reads it... I am at my wits end! Nothing works!
Can anyone offer some advice to avoid the daily battle?
Thanks in advance!
