Is it the learning style, do you think? Perhaps the curriculum isn't working for her? Like... you said practicing spelling words. Are you using the method where she has a list of words to learn and test each week? Maybe a daily spelling program would be better (like Sequential Spelling, or something hands-on like All About Spelling?). Maybe she's not into the worksheets, either. Yes, some work has to be written, but if the curriculum is primarily in workbook form, she may be getting overwhelmed with it. She might need something hands on or computer based to break up her day. What about breaks? Is she getting plenty of snack/play/relax time between lessons?
Thanks to tasha_mae for my siggy!
