Report card and open communication with teacher
my daughter received her report card yesterday. The comment from the teacher: I appreciate the open lines of communication between us. then writes: Daughter remains below grade level standards in most academic areas.
Excuse me?? I receive this from a comment and not over the phone. What kind of non-sense is this? This is the first I'm hearing about this.
I've sending a letter with my daughter to school asking the teacher how come this is the first time I'm hearing this and why wasn't tis discussed over the phone or in person.
Have you ever had a situation like this? How did you handle it?
***FOLLOW UP!! Happy Thursday!
I spoke with Katharine's teacher, she said that Katharine is distracted during class which doesn't help her. When she does her classwork on test she rushed through the test and gets a low grade. During class work she also rushes and this is what's causing the below grade level. It also seems that Katharine needs someone to start her or get her to push herself on the homework and classwork.
I'm trying to let Katharine be responsible. When she leaves the afterschool program she meets me at different locations. Yesterday, she waited by herself for the school bus, something she wants to do in the morning. I'm hoping these ways of responsibilities show her that if she can be responsible on doing things by herself with me trusting, then she will need to take responsibility for her actions at school and also, when it comes to homework and school work. She will need to be proud when she bring home a good grade again. I have to encourage her to do better at school. Best regards,
Thanks for all your questions, advice and suggestions.
