my child cannot read. and is in the 5th grade. I brought her some books I got for free at work, they're for 3-5th grade level, but she cannot read. She didn't know the word light. Or instructions, and I know the word instructions is all over her school work.

It makes my heart break because HOW DO THEY LET CHILDREN GET THIS FAR AND THEY CAN'T READ????

When I was in 5th grade I was reading my homie Harry Potter. And It just kills me that she can barely read simple words. I mean instructions is a big one, but light. She asked me what errands were also, because her name was on the board for running errands.
