If it turns out she was "punished" and did sit there the rest of the day, then yes, I'd say that's extreme for a pre-k aged child. If anything, the teacher could have got down to her level and asked her if something was wrong or inquired further.
We had "problems" with my son's K teacher. She labeled him as behind the other kids, "slow" if you will, because he wouldn't answer things in class or for her. He was extremely shy AND had a speech impediment that he was concious about so he knew the material, just wouldn't answer her when they worked on it in class.
He grew out of it by the next year, and ended first grade at the top of his class. He's still a quiet, manneristic boy at school, but has lots of friends and does what is needed. (And is totally opposite at home!)

I asked my daughter about it in the car and she burst into tears. Later I apporached it with her and she said she sat there through free play time, art and story. probably close to 50 mins or so.
|A little compassion would go a long way - how about the teacher say to your child, "would you like to be excused?" instead of ineffectively pressuring her.|
