In a joint effort, we are working with the school in trying to improve XBoy’s behavior at school. Whether his attitude is a reflection of ZGirl’sarrival; a change in classrooms (I think K to 1st is major and so is 8th to 9th); or something more biological, we continue to search for answers.
One of the other factors I believe DOES in fact play into how he’s doing this year is an inexperienced teacher.
The other day, his report had these comments noted on it:
XBoy was agressive today – said many “put downs” to others and was distructive to meterials
XBoy did have good focus on his math Quiz but then crumpeled it up and tried to throw it away.
Except for me changing his name to XBoy, this is verbatim.
Sure it bothered me that he was having a particular bad day, but I’m way more irritated by his teacher’s spelling. This is the woman teaching 19 children in a private school? Who next year will teach 17-20 more? And the year after that, ad nauseum?
I’m no spelling bee champion (ask any one who has to read my tweets), but that? Four words misspelled? I’m discouraged, to say the least.
(Time for me to hit the spell check…
….. I misspelled “misspelled”. Ugh)
