My first grader's teacher asked children in their homework to make a face out of coins value 1 penny, nickel, and dime.Under that face the child should write I am (HIs or her name) and below "i am woth" and the sum of coins of which the portret made.The value turns to be no more than 2 dollars. Majority of parents did the assignment and the teacher posted it on class window. I found it degrading and told my daughter that we change an assignment a bit. She got the full credit for that version, but teacher refused to display it with the work of all other children. MY daughter is very upset that her work was not posted, but the teacher told that she won't posted it. So what do you think?am i wrong?Answer Question

I think you have every right to ask for a meeting with the teacher to ask her why she had the assignment worded the way it was. I am not sure if you did this although if it were me I would have wrote a note to her explaining why I didn't like the way it was worded.
It might be a thing were the teacher is teaching them about money and didn't think anything of what she was having them write. Like she didn't think anything of having them say "I am worth "X".
While I understand that it is hard for your DD to not have her worked displayed the teacher probably did it to teach her a lesson. I understand that she is only in first grade although as she gets older she might not even get credit for doing a different assignment. AS your kids get older you learn what battles to pick with the schools, this just might be a learning lesson for your child. Good Luck!
