Sorry it has been so long, but crazy things happened around here. Anyway...
They are going to start reading groups in January, placing dd with one other "student." Dd and I know who this student is and she is nowhere near dd's reading level. She is just making her way through The Magic Treehouse series. I am concerned about that.
The assistant teacher brought out finger knitting to teach dd and anyone else who was interested. Dd loved that. It also seems to have helped dd start interacting with other children in the class. They also put out more challenging morning games like Monopoly, and dd enjoyed playing that with a couple other children.
I did not get much of an answer on math. Their math is mostly group work/calendar work and things like that.
I fear things may get lost in committee, so I'm planning to get an e-mail back to the principal before school starts.
Since so much happened right after the meting I didn't get a chance to write up a summary. Posting here shows me I really need to sit down and go back through my notes and memory and write it out.
