Got a call from my son's Kinder teacher today. She has color coded clip system.
Pink is Super student, Purple is Great job, Blue is good choice,
green is neutral/ready to learn(everyone starts here each day)
Yellow is Think about, Orange is Teacher's Choice(punishment), and Red is Parent Contact.
My son apparently wasn't follow directions, and flat out refused to complete the worksheet practicing letter Rr(which is odd as it is in his name twice so he is very proficient at it). She said there wasn't any tantrums etc..just him saying no.
She called and my husband happened to be home as well. I asked if I could talk with him...and my husband gave him a stern talking to via phone and apparently his day improved from there.
Though I see why she called(he went down to red) I also don't really see how refusing to do the work qualified as a call home, especially when she didn't want anything from me or me to do anything, besides making me aware.
So what is the system like in your kinder's class(or in the past)??
When my son was in kindergarten, there was a similar system. The only difference is that their was a neutral and then two levels above (good) and two levels below (bad). Did she say why his clip was moved twice?
