YDS(9) came home yesterday,very upset that he had failed a test in Math.Not only was he worried he would get in trouble,he was also worried that he would fail Math for the year.Keep in mind,YDS has never had a grade below a C.,so to fail a test is devastating to him.
He said that they were not given a study guide for the test.Nor have they had any homework dealing with division,which is what the test was on.
I explained to him that maybe the teacher just wanted to see where the kids were in their skills,and that it probably won't count as a grade.He is adamant that it will and that the teacher told them it counts.
So,I wanted to email the teacher and ask about the test,but I don't want to sound like one of those "how dare you do this to my kid?" parents.Any advice on how to word the email?Or is there no way to word it,without coming off as some nutty parent?
