Dd's maternal language is English, but we live in a predominantly francophone city (Montreal) and she goes to French school. This year she has started first grade and has an ESL class. So far they are learning the names of colours and how to count in English, while dd can already read at a beginner level (in English). Obviously the class work is way below her level. Do you think it's unreasonable for me to ask for different work for her to do during her ESL class time? I can't really imagine the teacher preparing different stuff just for her... but at the same time all of those class hours are just going to be a (boring) joke to her. How can I broach this with her teacher? Or should I just let it go?
