Wondering if anyone has had to deal with one twin being held back in school?
My fraternal boys are in 1st grade, and are very different, one has a real knack for memorizing things and is very detail oriented and has had an easy time with the way schooling is structured. The other is much more physical/hands on, and isn't as good at sitting still to figure things out. He has amazing ability to see how things work, and is very intelligent, but hasn't been as interested in things like reading.
He is behind in reading level and isn't retaining the things they are all learning as well as most others in the class.
They have been in separate classes in both Kindergarten and 1st grade, but are together in after school care.
We have been trying to work more with him and want what is best for him/his needs.
But, we are worried about the possibility of him being held back.
He is much bigger than his brother and most kids already.
thanks for any thoughts/experiences!
