I'm sure you can get some good advice from someone on this, but I do want to encourage you that every child is different & some things you may not be able to change. I was the type who's mind drifted in class too. I wrote notes & letters instead of doing school work. Later to have a letter ministry to elderly people. Have you tried to do any kind of reward system with her? I wish you two the best!

I was going throu the same thing with my 13 year old son the school said that he was a day dreamer and lazy. and thay tested him and said that he was to smart for anykind of help. So i took him to his doctor and he has adhd So thay tryed some med. to help him to stay on task. He went from making D's and F's to B's and C's in the last two month's of school.

At home it is just you, her, and dad (and maybe brothers or sisters); at school it is her and 20+ other kids with only on adult in the room. My daughter is very different at home then she is in school. and if yours is anything like mine she cares more about what clothes she wearing and talking to the kids around her then she does her school work. You should talk to the teacher, who she is seated next to can make a HUGE difference in how she does in school. You should also talk to your daughter, and be sure not to make her think she is in trouble when you talk to her. Ask her why she isn't doing her work or if she is having trouble understanding. After all she is your daughter and probably understands things a lot of the same ways you do, so when you go over it with her she knows it. She my just have a hard time understanding the way that the teacher is teaching it. Or maybe something is troubling/bothering her and that is on her mind. it is also not very uncommon for a 9 year old little girl to be in the early part of starting puberty and she could be confused. You best bet is going to be to talk to her about it, in a very friendly way. Know one knows your daughter better then her.
