Never been to school

I have a student coming tomorrow that has never been to school. They tried to homeschool her, but they said it didnít go well.

No idea what to do except start from scratch on reading skills. I guess math skills are decent.

She should be given a basic skills screening and placed where her needs can best be met. Of course you'll modify work for her, but you have a whole class full of kids to teach. You can't give her one to one all day! I hope dhe gets the support she needs.

She was tested and still placed in my room. I was told to figure it out.

She may (it's not a given, just something to watch out for) also need a little support making friends. If you can find out some of her interests, and you know a bit about your other incoming students, I'd seat her next to someone she has a good chance of "clicking" with.

If you don't know that many details, I'd just put her near a strong reader, so at least she has support with directions while she's learning.

Classroom rules may (again, it varies) also be an issue. I had a little boy once who was really shocked that he had to ask to go to the bathroom. It seemed so weird to him to have to involve a stranger in body needs. - I explained that I simply had to know where everyone was in case of a fire drill.

It's likely (again, nothing is certain) that you'll find she's behind in some things, but ahead in others.

She may also tire easily if she is unused to following a schedule. (Or that may be just what she's looking forward to -again, not something to assume, just an explanation to be aware of if certain behaviors crop up.)

Withhold judgment for a few days. I had one like that and she was low, but it didn't take anytime for her to catch on. I believe she was starving for an education.

Give her extra support socially. You might be happily surprised.

I agree with the social skills assistance. Maybe ask one student per day/week to buddy with her until she is getting through the day well. This will help her keep up, have someone to be there for breaks/lunch/recess, etc.
Be prepared to help with organization skills.
I'm sure your own observations and assessments will help you guide her learning.

For my own records, I would give a phonics assessment. I like this one. I would also give the Words Their Way spelling inventory to find out where she is.

She may turn out to be your favorite student! Give her time.

The Quick Phonics Skills Screen is excellent.
Thank you for sharing!
