My DD is in second grade and her teacher wants to hold her back saying she is 6 months behind. I don't get it though because last year she had straight A's and B' s all year but this teacher says she wouldn't have passed her last year if she had her.
Well my dd tells me stuff like the teacher gave the kids a piece of candy but my dd couldn't get hers opened so she asked the teacher for help and the teacher told her no that she can do it and told my dd that she is no help. Then asked for a Kleenex one time cause she couldn't reach them and the teacher told her she can get it. Both times she.asked for her friends help because the teacher wouldnt help. She also told me one time she didn't understand something so she asked the teacher and the teacher told her to go away. I have asked the teacher about this, but she just tells me my dd is lying. My dd is also was bringing home like 15 pages of homework when I asked the teacher she said my dd asked for papers to play school, but my dd said the teacher said it was homework. I don't know if I want to hold her back and have the same teacher. The teacher said it is my choice, but she will be more behind next year of I don't hold her back and then I won't get a choice in third. I just don't see how she wen from so good to like D' s and F' s I think the teacher made her behind.
I got workbooks from the library and wrote down some math, reading and writing stuff to do with my dd to work hard with her so she gets caught up. She loves doing that stuff anyway well I guess she told her teacher we got books from the library and are going to do them together and her teacher I guess told her that she didn't need to to do those that she has homework to do(which she does so each night).
