So when picking up my 4yo from preschool this morning the teacher pulled me aside to let me know Kaeden isn't participating and she thought this would be easing up more by now, two weeks in.
He will stand but will not put his hand on his heart or say the pledge of alligance. He won't sing with the other kids for songs. He won't announce himself during attendance and the teacher makes this fun by having them say different things each day. He won't join in art projects until everyone else is already involved in their own.
She said if he doesn't start doing stuff with the class she is going to have to start taking things from him like free play, etc. All the kids need to be joining in and with him not doing it it sets a bad example. I totally understand everything she is saying.
We talked and she said to give him choices for things to do at home but only two and he should have to pick just one of them and stick to it. I'm all for this-I do this already for a ton of stuff. I guess I'm asking for more advice on this.
What else can I do to encourage him to participate?
