Should first graders in their third week of classes be expected to formulate five letter sentences?


My wife and I are at odds over our son being capable of formulating and writing five word sentences with correct grammar and punctuation. She is upset that our son has received a poor grade on his first graded vocabulary test in which the students are expected to write five word sentences on their own using a specified word. She also believes that this skill is beyond our sons capability at this point in time, she feels that this testing is not something that children in the third week of first grade should be doing for a grade. I disagree, I think he is capable he just needs more practice.
