My daughter Hannah is 9 and in 4th grade. Her Science teacher is Ms. Roe and her class goes to her classroom for science. Yesterday my daughter accidently left her science homework in her regualar classroom. She tried to explain that to Ms. Roe but several other students didn't have their homework either and she didn't want to hear all their excuses. Ms. Roe was really mad that so many students didn't have their homework so she told them all as punishment they had to write a paragraph explaining why they didn't have their homework and they would be losing recess. My daughter has never forgotten her homework or ever been in trouble before so she started crying. She told me she was trying really hard not to but she couldn't help it. She wasn't loudly sobbing or disrupting class she was sitting at her table writing her paragraph with tears running down her face. The teacher didn't even notice until a girl told her Hannah was crying. She called Hannah up to talk to her and once my daughter explained that she had her homework it was just in her other class room Ms Roe let her go get it. Ms. Roe then told her her behavior was "ridiculous" and she had to miss 1 minute of recess for crying. It doesn't really bother me that she had to miss a minute of recess. Even though my daughter did her homework she was still unprepared by forgetting to bring it with her. I am not one of those moms that always thinks my child is right. I almost always agree with the teacher. But the thought of her being so embarrassed and crying and then told she was ridiculous and punished in front of all her classmates makes me sad for her. Would you say anything to her teacher or let it go?
