Difficulty with writing sight words
02/29/2012 at 09:01 AM


I have a student with a somewhat similar problem, she can read the sight words perfectly but when asked to write them without looking at the word she writes something completely incoherent for example HOW she writes hrh...I've tried having her make the sounds of the letters to see if she's able to write them like that, but it only worked once, yesterday I had her spell each word, in a chanting way, and it helped after several tries, but it has left me puzzled as to why this could be happening.

Steven M. R. Covey proposes a concept called Smart Trust. He suggests you consider these 3 things.

1. What is the opportunity?
2. What is the risk involved?
a. what are the possible outcomes
b. what is the likelihood of the outcomes
c. what is the importance of the outcomes?
3. What is the character of the people involved.
