dd is in K and has been going since the mjddle of august. Yesterday was her first day of finger painting and she was given a print out of a spider to paint and dd was tild hers wouldnt be displayed in the hallway with the rest of the class because she painted over the spider.
She was very upset and I didnt send her to school today bc I plan on going to speak w the teacher. This is the teachers first year at teaching K and she is treating them as if they are her old 3rd graders.
am I over reacting?

She didn't follow directions, this is a lesson. You should have sent her to school. You are sending her the wrong message.

Yes, you are over reacting, especially in keeping your daughter home from school over it. The teacher should not have said what she did, but your daughter is never going to learn to deal with disappointment if you sweep in, guns blazing, every time something happens.

It's just Kindy...teacher needs to get a grip, and if I were you, I'd post that painting right up next to the other kids' work while the teacher and her boss both watch.

You made it worse by keeping her home.  Sure talk to the teacher provately, but don't make a big deal out of it

Yes you are overreacting. In kindergarten a child should know how to finger paint a printed out spider and follow directions. This teacher has high expectations for her students apparently and will push them to do their best.

Let me guess your one of those parents who think little Susie needs a trophy for participating. Life isn't always fair.
