GENERAL INFORMATION ON THE GROUP
"My child doesn't like to read, and he/she gets low marks for Russian language", modern parents keep complaining. This is hardly surprising, as those children who enter school without any qualified preparationare in rather tough situation.Everything is changing in the child's life from the daily regimen, friends, main activities and external and internal environments. Playing activities are replaced with studies and physical and emotional load is also increasing. A seven year old child has to adapt to all these changes and, moreover, to master new learning skills. Children with speech abnormalities as well as psychologically unstable children who are usually inattentive and restless have substantial problems in the first form. (according to some data – 65-80% of pupils).
Among children with poor progress in reading and writing there is a group of children for whom additional classes and numerous dictations and rewriting of the homework on the Russian language are useless. They are always making the same mistakes (omissions, mix up of letters in words, syllables, etc.). And if these imperfections are left without any attention, then these mistakes as a snowball will grow constantly from the grade to grade.
Children, who have some difficulties in mastering the spelling rules and cannot apply them in practice, get bad marks, low self esteem and further problems in studying.
