Thank you for replying.
The only thing the teacher wrote on the sheet was a big question mark next to the score.
DD bawled her eyes out when she saw that I had the worksheet in my hand. She says that she doesn't like second grade because now they get "real" grades and she's afraid of getting a low one.
She is the type to walk away from something new if she doesn't get it right away. She'd much rather do the things that she excels at instead of trying something different, I'm guessing out of fear of failing? I would say that her self-esteem is starting to diminish out of fear of getting a lower grade. She cried and cried while telling me that she sometimes doesn't even want to try, because what if she gets it wrong?
I honestly don't know if DD minds being the helper. I just asked her and she said that she never thought about liking it, she just does it because the teacher tells her to.
I sent an email asking the teacher for a conference. Today is an in-service day and the first report card comes home on Monday.

Hmm. I got a note from DD's teacher saying that a conference is not needed at this time due to the fact that DD is doing so well. So I only get to talk to the teacher if she's doing poorly?
