Ds is in K.
The other K class gets a snack every day, ds's class doesn't. No big deal, K is only half day here, I thought maybe ds teacher just didn't want to waste precious class time on snack. But I found out today from another mom that their class DOES have snacktime BUT almost every day they lose it because of someone's behavior. In a class of 27 kids, it's always one of 3 boys. One kid disobeys and everyone loses snack?! What kind of teacher does that? I don't care about the actual snack, but feel terrible for ds to have to lose out almost every day because of someone else. He is always very well behaved in school and shouldn't be punished for what other kids do.
Also, Field Day is coming up. Last year at Field Day, ds' teacher had told her students not to touch the cattails at the edge of the field. 2 students touched them, so she brought the whole class inside and made them sit with their heads down. She was going to make the whole class miss out on all of field day because of 2 kids. (whose offense, imo, wasn't even that terrible...maybe those 2 should have sat down and missed a game as punishment). Luckily, a mom went to the principal and the kids were taken back out by another staff member.
Anyone else with a teacher like this? If you are a teacher, do you punish the whole class for what one student does?
