See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
As most of you know I'm raising my 7yo grand daughter and she is in 2nd grade. Well she has been misbehaving in school. Playing and talking in class and and misbehaving when she goes to the bathroom. Well she gets what they call a HABIT report card evey Monday for the week before. The H stands for homework,A for Attendance,B for Behavior,I for initiative, and T for Traveling in the hallways. Well shes been having a big problem since she went back from winter vacation just not wanting to behave in class.
Well this past weekend she went to her Moms for the weekend and since she was in trouble she wasn't allowed to watch TV or play any video games. So she went to her Mom and told her the reason she was misbehaving in class was she couldn't concetrate because she would look over and her friends would be playing around and talking soooo she wanted to play and then couldn't concentrate on her work anymore. And she didn't tell me this because I wouldn't believe her! UHMMM well,she had told me this plus ten other reasons..and what it boils down to,is its HER thats wanting to play and talk to her friends.Which she has admited,because she isn't having any fun!
So anyway I was fed up with and just a little pissed that if the teacher was having problems with her,why can't they pick up the phone and call us when it happens,not me finding out a F"ing week later. So I sent a note to her teacher saying as much,maybe not using that language though.
And she sends me a note back(after me requesting that she call me)saying she appreciated me showing interest in my grand daughters schooling. And that it was KAli that was doing the talking and ect. Plus they were having a problem with her continuosly wanting to go to the nurses office. And when told no,Kali has snuck out of the classroom and went anyway. And she had turned around and lied to the teacher.And then a week later went to her and apologized and told her the truth. This because Kali dosen't want to do her school work ,not because she has any medical problems! She did have a blister on her heel sooo she needed to leave class because it was itching!!! And this has been going on for awhile too! And today is the first time I've heard about it!
I'm so livid I could scream...my grand child has been sneaking out of class AND I wasn't told,by the teacher or the school nurse. But the school nurse had e-mailed the teacher to voice her concerns to her! Ummm,they aren't raising her,I am!
And she says that we'll talk more about it when we have a conference which isn't for another 3 weeks! Well shes going to get a suprise tomorrow because I'm calling the school to speak to the principal and demanding I get to talk to him and the teacher!
Am I wrong in actually wanting to know when my grand child is misbehaving or having problems in class when the problem arises,not when the teacher feels like getting around telling me!
When I was in school and we disrupted the class in any way,the first time we were spoken to,2nd time recess was taken away,3rd time we were at the office and our parents were called! And if it was really bad,which sneaking out of class and lieing to the teacher is pretty damn serious to me,we would of been in the office asap,and parents would of been called to the school!
Sorry it so long but trying to talk to my daughter about this and she just tries making excuses for Kalis behavior.
