In which grade your son is studying? some child are very slow in their work even in reading and writing. But nothing to worry about this. Sit near to him whenever he write and motivate him to write the things fast than before. You can change him slowly slowly but please don't shout or scream if he not able to do at the first time and all. But i am sure that if you proceed this your son going to be fast in his work
You don't say how old your child is - but every child can improve their reading by being read to. Read aloud to your son every night if you can and for 15 minutes. Or - get a taped book from the library and listen to it together. Hearing reading helps children to become better readers themselves. Your son should also read himself every night - in a Very Easy book - something he's comfortable reading to himself - and he should read himself for 15 minutes every night. He needs practice.
If a child is struggling with reading, they almost always struggle with writing as well. It's really not possible to be a good writer if you're not a strong reader. Until his reading skills improve, his teacher should not be giving him long writing assignments. A good sentence every day would be a good writing assignment for him. If he gets longer writing assignments, let him speak while you type up what he's saying.
yes you didn't share the details of your child's academic level..anyway i think many children having the same problem with their homework's, reading and writing...but the only way to improve his/her reading, writing skill is to encourage them as much as you can then only he/she will enjoy the reading habits and reading only can improve the writing skills..
You might want to make learning a bit more exciting for your
boy. You can do this by borrowing a leaf (or two) from sites that offer
generous information on how to motivate your child to learn. Try reading to him and slowly win his curiosity so that he will be more willing to go for more.
Sites such as this one offer you pointers to peek your child’s interest in
learning. Try it out and see if the little man will have a change of interest.
