Pulling my First Grader from k12 this week

Posted by   + Show Post

 The only one still in k12 and she only wanted it because she loved seeing her teacher once a week.  Since my husbands motorcycle accident we can not afford the 1 hour drive to the place where the class meets. 

I have also been noticing they are not teaching the same things they did to my dd last year (granted she is advanced and a grade ahead in math so she was doing 2nd grade last year.)  But she can not do a problem like 1+4=_+3 and they expect her too.  She picked it up quickly after one little lesson but she is not use to needing lessons because she is use to knowing it.  I want harder work for somethings and time to slow down on others and she is not getting that.

Her writing is not legible and I do make her rewrite and rewrite and have started coming up with different printouts for her than her work book. 

Plus I read her the story the other day and she had to use 3 words in a sentence (I told her she could write 3 sentences), it also had to be about the story we read just then, she could not do it.  She could not even tell me the sentence.  So we need to take some serious time on that.  

So I am going to have an interesting day tomorrow.  She will be pulled no later than the end of Thanksgiving week as soon as I talk to both schools hopefully it will be done.  She is happy because she is getting to start dance, the new charter pays for it, but she is going to miss her teacher and weekly friends terribly.

In California we have public charter schools that pay for Curriculum and extra curricular activities. My oldest is working through one of them and we were going to move her to that one and use the same teacher. But the teacher has to many students right now so, we either go with another teacher there or a different charter as I promised if she agreed to leave k12 she could do dance and we can not afford it at this moment.

Quoting celticdragon77:

I used K12 with my three kids (for a short time). They NEVER met their teachers. It was all done online.

What do you plan on doing after K12?
