I'm just going to react to the spelling comment. With a child who is struggling and has handwriting difficulties, I wouldn't mark a work wrong for an r that looked like a v. My reasoning is that it is highly unlikely that anyone would make a spelling error, substituting V for R. On the other hand, if I couldn't tell whether the letter was O or E or A--that one would be marked wrong. This kids needs some successes. It's very hard to go to school day after day and keep coming up short.

Is there any chance that this boy could get some OT help with handwriting?
