School started on Aug. 3rd and my 2 dd's just started at a new school. DD#1 just turned 8 and is complaining that her class is too loud (kids talking too much). This complaint isn't really new for her, she used to complain at times in younger grades too. She's definitely sensitive when it comes to noise. If I raise my voice she thinks I'm yelling and she's complained in the past about her teacher who yells sometimes which I know is probably just her teacher raising her voice to get the class' attention. She also doesn't like background noise and complains when she's trying to read and her younger sister is talking.
The school she just started at is what's called Outward Bound Expeditionary and I think it will be very good for her. She hasn't had a very good educational experience up until now due to her struggles with what I suspect is dyslexia and her previous school not being a good match for her learning style and interests. So with only 3 days into the new school year I'm kinda bummed that she is upset about her class being too loud. Her words exactly "it's too hard" and when I asked her what was too hard she said b/c the kids are loud. I thought maybe she was trying to concentrate on something and the kids are talking too much and she said no, that they aren't doing any work yet. It's just too loud and on Friday she got a headache. I asked her if she talked to her teacher about it and she said no and that "she (the teacher) is trying to control the class, I know she's really trying".
Should I mention this to the teacher? Or should I give it more time for the class to get settled and into a rhythm? We are new at this school and I don't want to start complaining about something only 3 days into the new year, kwim? But this is really bothering my dd.
