It's the third week of Kindergarten. DD is going half-day, because (A) she isn't going to learn anything anyway; and (B) I don't have $5000 to pay to send her to full-day kindy.
DD has sensory processing issues and is borderline for ADHD and Aspergers, all of which spells "behavior problems". She annoys other people and doesn't realize they want her to stop doing whatever it is she's doing. She's very impulsive, and some days she seems to give in to every bad idea that crosses her mind. She is going to a social skills group and another special needs group, and her teacher has a earn points, get stickers behavior thing going on for her. Her classroom is fortuitously connected to the resource room and she can go there if she's feeling like she needs a break, and that has been going better since I suggested they give her some books at her reading level to calm her down.
She's reading on at least a 3rd or 4th grade level. She writes well--sentences with good grammar, 95% correct spelling, and decent punctuation. This week she spontaneously used "it's" correctly in something she's written. For math, she can add carrying a 1 and do basic multiplication; she hasn't memorized the addition chart but she can nearly always figure out what two numbers add up to using various type of logic (ie, 5+4 is like 4+4, plus an extra 1 = 9).
So in Kindergarten, they are currently learning to write numbers. The learning unit this month is colors. They've been doing a lot of worksheets where they trace and write numbers, and a lot of coloring pages. DD hates coloring but she has been complaining less bitterly since I explained that the point of coloring pages isn't really to colors but to learn to follow instructions and listen. She's still bored, though.
We have P/T conferences in 2 weeks. If you were me, what sort of accomodation might you ask for? I want her doing reading, writing, and math that isn't going to bore her. DD's behavior is iffy enough that it isn't likely that she could be sent up to a more advanced class. But what can I reasonably expect in her half-day class? She was bored all last year and didn't learn a darned thing all year, and that really can't happen 2 years in a row. Or 3 years, since the district just announced they are not going to have TAG classes for 1st grade anymore starting next year. :(
