My son went from being the boy who gets the fewest number of daily reprimands in Kindergarten to the boy getting the most number of daily reprimands in first grade. I started the year speaking with other parents who's children had already been through this teacher's class and was told she seems very strict at the beginning of the year but as the kids start adjusting to the rules the number of "check marks" they receive will steadily go down. So, I figured I would give it some time and see what happens.
What has happened is that he is now receiving THREE check marks daily vs. the ONE he was getting daily at the beginning of the year. He's gotten worse. Now he constantly says he hates school because of the check marks and that now his friends don't like him anymore because the teacher doesn't like him.
His biggest issue is distraction. He constantly loses focus and tends to space off in the middle of a task. (Cont'd below)
