It’s that time, for our first parent teacher conference. We’ve had downs, we’ve had ups. We want her more engaged, more challenged, and are going to ask for that. Because you don’t challenge someone who can read 4th grade books (or higher) by asking them to read Kindergarten books to other Kindergarteners. She can already speak in public very well, thank you. Sigh. Maybe there’s more to it than what it appears, but we’re just not seeing that they’re taking her intelligence/advanced learning seriously.
So we shall see.
We go in tomorrow and have 15 minutes to hear what the teacher has to say and say what we need to. There was already a flyer asking if we had concerns. Of course we do. We’re not entirely sure she should even be there. She’s learning to socialize with other kids her age, but when all that entails at this point is fart jokes and how to say rude words that we don’t teach her? Not so much in favor of that. So we’ll see. We’re trying to keep an open mind. We’re trying so hard… but it’s difficult when your kid comes home and says they learned nothing…
and you actually believe them.
