My go-to solution is to mix things up!! Sometimes it's just a matter of presenting the information in a new and maybe even FUN way and that's all it takes for it to click for them! I have a different learning style than my son, and so I often have to think outside the box when it comes to teaching him! Turn a simple spelling test into a game, do copywork or handwriting on a dry erase board instead of paper...simple LITTLE things can make a HUGE difference in their young minds!
