My son is in kindergarten and he comes home everyday complaining that he does not get computer time and other children do. I asked the teacher about it because I felt it wasn't fair. She said that the computer was a choice when students finish work and that my son is not finishing his work. She said that maybe he should use his desire to use the computer as incentive to finish his work. I told her that every kid needs a turn and I will personally come in next week to guarantee he gets one. The teacher's response was that he will receive computer time when he learns to complete his work in a timely manner. I don't think she realizes she is not dealing with college kids, but FIVE YEAR OLDS!Answer Question
If your child is actually struggling with the work, then I think he needs some individual attention to help him finish on time and thus get computer time. If he's dilly dallying, then I think the teacher is right and he needs to learn to do his work first. I have worked in kindergarten classes before, and the teachers I have worked with knew which kids were just goofing off and taking their sweet time and which kids actually needed help, and treated the situation accordingly. Chances are, your son will do his work in a more timely fashion if you back the teacher.
