Yesterday ds came home from pre k complaining that he didnt dance at music class as his friends left him out and nobody wanted to be his partner. He says he sat in the corner crying while other kids danced. He felt torn about it and ASKED me to talk to his teacher. I didnt have a chance to his teacher today. Should i write her to engourage him to get involved? Wwyd? Please no bashing

Just talk to her in person when you take him to school next. Conversations are nearly always the best place to start, especially with 3/4 year olds who don't always remember exactly what happened and explain it accurately.

I'd talk to her in person and ask her why she thinks he was left out.  What has she noticed socially.

I doubt very seriously his teacher let him sit in a corner and cry without trying to get him involved. I would ask her, but don't come at her in an accusatory way. And prepare yourself to hear a totally different version of the story!

talk to the teacher face to face, you don't know the whole story

if he feels there might be a problem, talk to her. most kids say everything is ok. but i agree his version maybe completely different then what actually happened. if he was excluded find out why?!?!?

The teacher should be putting partners together so no one gets left out. I wonder why the teacher doesn't do that?

He has never complained to me before either

Quoting D3SMOMMY:

Just ask her about the situation. In person would be better.
