focus issues

My daughter who is 5 year old is having some problems in school regarding her focusing. she does not focus on her work, when her teacher gives her some work, like writing/copying form the board. She can do it when she gets one on one attn, and when she is on her own she seems to be lost or looking at others. When at home I give her time and so does my husband to  make her do the work(do writing). She is good at her reading rather above her level.

What exactly is your question? What you report sounds like the most typical problem of girls with ADHD -  "a deer in the headlights" I read once as a description. Is she diagnosed? I have ADHD and as a child I was "spacey" especially when it was something I was not interested in. However, despite my inattention, I learned to read early and devored books at a fast pace. ADHD kids are very often smart and gifted so there's nothing strange about that.
