9 year old dd couldn't find her spelling book last night - became tearful and a little hysterical. Still concerned this morning that her teacher would 'shout at her'. Her teacher is a bit manic tbh - either Tigger happy and bouncy or Eoyore morose and grouchy! Am not overly happy about dd being anxious about going to school and seeing her class teacher. Should I say something and if so how? (in order to prevent possible repercussions due to me 'complaining')
She has been through 5 years of primary education before this year and hasn't expressed any 'fear' of her previous 5 class teachers so I suppose that's why this is flagging up as a bit of a concern to me. I guess I could leave it a little longer and 'suck it and see' though before doing anything
ds age 9 is also dyslexic and has to learn to be organised and not lose homework diary, spellings etc. I'm afraid call me a harsh parent but if he doesn't learn now with a telling off from his teacher then in 2 years when he gets to high school and has lots of different teachers he will be stuffed.
My sons major problem is remembering his homework diary so he can do his homework, firstly I thought he kept forgetting on purpose but he does forget, but I can't keep reminding him he has to be responsible and he must get into the habit of sorting himself out. If he gets a detention then thats what happens, the sooner he learns to sort himself out the better he will be in years to come. But if he was becoming distressed I might ask the teacher to go a bit easy on him but not to let him off completely.
Have you considered the fact that the teacher is not actually shouting, but is just speaking sternly? Agree that your DD should be organised by Y5 and not lose things. You could talk to the teacher about your DD's reaction and see what she says.
