So, we went to Back to School Night last night. After the teacher's presentation, individual parents went up and talked to her. We went up and asked how our daughter is doing and she said "she is behaving really well but did she tell you that she got her name on the board?" Ummm....no (but that's because we went from picking her up and taking her straight to practice so we didn't have a chance). She said that she needs to slow down on her assignments because she is trying to speed through it. She has told her a couple of times already and yesterday she sped through it again but this time she didn't complete her entire work because she didn't read the directions properly. So, she put her name on the board as a warning to listen and read directions.
Can you believe this teacher? How DARE she???
**Okay....my tone is obviously a joke because I praised the teacher and thanked her for getting on her. I see the same thing at home and she has been told this from other teachers. Most of the time she will do the work correctly but the teachers all still want her to slow down, read directions carefully, and turn in good work.
She is a good kid, does well in school but I have been trying to slow her down for awhile now. Thoughts? Strategies?
