if what dd 4 says is accurate.

she told me she went to her class to get her coat after dinner and witnessed two of her class mates looking at a picture that belonged to the teacher and one girl ripped it.

after lunch it was discovered by teacher and she asked the class who had ripped it and my dd called out the name of the culprit, then the whole class began to call this girls name out. the teacher then anounced she was a very "rude girl" and little girl began to cry.

I aksed my dd how she thinks the girl may have felt and should she have maybe had a quite word with teacher rather than call her name out. but dd seemed to think that she would not have learned her lesson that way, (insightfull child, pahh) as she only got sad because she was embarrassed and not sorry.

i cant help but think this could have been handled differently by the teacher on a more 1:1 level.

How old are these girls?

It is never right for a teacher to call a child a name, she shouldn't have called her rude, she should have said that what she did was rude. There is a big difference. The teacher may have been upset that her picture had been wrecked, was it a personal one?

I don't think your dd did anything wrong, although the teacher may have been hoping that the culprit would own up themselves.

they are 4 years old and i just hope she did not call the girl rude.

i know dd didnt do anything wrong but just wanted her to maybe see that calling out and naming isnt always the best way.

it wasnt a personal photo it was a picture of the nativity scene.
