I also wonder how long I would need to wait on a student to see if they were struggling but could catch up or if there was an issue beyond just what would be considered normal. I think that with time as educators we will be able to better judge those types of situations but hopefully the remainder of this course will give us some insight on how to spot problems that need extra attention.

This part is important, but its just as important to understand what the words mean or the child is not really reading. Maybe focusing on comprehension as students begin to decode would be beneficial.
