My daughter started full-day K this year at a small private school. Their current theme is farm-related stuff, and the teacher has been reading Charlotte's Web to them. According to my daughter, they are not finished with the book, but on Friday they watched the animated Charlotte's Web movie (from 1973). She said she really liked it. For some reason though, it bugs me a little. Not so much the content, but that it seems kind of unnecessary to the curriculum (I mean, I realize it's fun, but that's about it). Also, it is the first actual movie my kid has ever seen (over 90 minutes long!). Maybe it's silly of me to be annoyed over it, but I wish I'd known ahead of time that they were going to watch it. Not that I would have prevented her from seeing it or anything.
Do your kids watch movies at school? If so, how often? Does the teacher let you know beforehand? Does it ever bother you?
Really, I am not enraged over this. Just slightly annoyed. School's been in session 4 weeks, and I know they've also watched some sort of Anansi the Spider thing on TV too. I just didn't expect movies in kindergarten, I guess.
Oh, heck. *I* wanted to watch her first real movie with her. That's part of what bugs me. Oh well. The cow's out of the barn now. Or whatever that expression is.
