    What to do?

    Judy,
    Your students who aren't reading at level may have good listening comprehension. Try to read aloud in class so they get to hear you as a model. I think it's frustrating for a child lagging behind to rely on the choppy reading of his classmates. If their parents are willing, encourage the parents to read social studies, science and reading stories to their child at home. They won't find this burdensome if they think it helps them to understand the material and pull them along in class. The no resource budget goes with the territory in a parochial school. Parents know this and sometimes they're willing to hire a tutor to help move their child forward. As for spelling, if a child is really struggling have them memorize only 10 per week. Their peers don't have to know. Tell the parents and just grade the ten you agree to (first ten words, etc.) Good luck.
