See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
My daughter is 7 and just started 2nd grade. She has leader type of personality, and can be a little fiesty sometimes. That being said her new teacher (who was a 5th grade teacher and now switched to 2nd grade for the first time) Called me on the 3rd day of school asking me about her saying she is having a hard time adjusting. My daughter struggles a little academically, but gets the job done. She has never had a problem with a teacher. I told the teacher to make a chart with a smile face for good and not one for not so good. Well everyday but one, the teacher has told me not nice things. (basically complaints like she was very tired, not cooperative today) It got to the point where I wrote her a note saying Only tell me things if she is having a really bad day, but also let me know something good she did. I believe in positive reinforcement. And to top it off she is sending home class work to do every night on top of homework. The other 2 second grade teachers give two homework assignments. This teacher gives 5 to 6 every night. This is where I need the advice.
