UGH! Damn school. 1inpink2inblue Switzerland 11952 posts20th Sep '12
I am losing it with this school. DD never had this many issues last year in preK. Today DD's teacher called about some test DD took at the beginning of the year and talked to my Dh. According to him she didn't even want to talk to him even though we are married which pisses me off. he is a very involved father and step father and spends just as much if not more time helping DD with homework and such. There is no reason she couldn't have talked to him with out issue. But she said DD scored so low on the test that she is being put in to a special group. The test was timed in which they had to identify letters and tell what sounds they made and she only knew like 7 letter and 4 sounds. I call bullshit here. I went over her letters today with her and she could tell me all but maybe five of them and she told me the sounds of almost half. I think she is just bored in school. They said I was slow at that age as well and it turns out I was just so bored because I already knew everything they were teaching. DD also can now read almost all 9 of her reading words on her reading list including blue and like. This was after I explained vowels and how an e at the end of the word makes the vowel behind it say its own name. It took her all of 2 minutes to get the idea and she repeated it back to me when I was trying to explain again later before I even got it all out of my mouth. I think she is just tired of doing the same thing over and over again. Just like me once she has got it she has got it move on or she will get bored and not even try anymore. IDK what to do at this point. She pretty much knows everything and gets frustrated when I make her do it more than once in a row. And the stuff she doesn't know she doesn't want told to her more than once or it is like you are insulting her lol.
