The first 6 weeks isn't even over yet and I get this note. She's been sending little notes so far, at least once a week, about how he doesn't pay attention and daydreams. We went to a parent teacher conference where she sort of blew it all off and said he didn't cause trouble or anything, that she just has to constantly remind him to get to work. She said he was smart and that he loved reading and that he behaves well. I know he is smart and he is very articulate. I don't know what to do about his attention problem. We have taken away all his video game and sleepover privileges as of yesterday after getting such a schocking note. I thought a lot of kids had trouble adjusting to a new school year the first 6 weeks. Is she out of line or am I just overly sensitive?

Ask her what is she doing to help. She says he is smart, reads well, and behaves. You are obviously supportive of his education and acting appropiately. It sounds like she is the one who is failing to engage him. Yes, I think it's so early to decide he is going to fail, and I would be very pissed if a teacher made that assumption after 6 weeks.
