Ok I am going to send my husband to deal with the teacher because I think I may become unprofessional.
My daughter age 10 was asked to " Write a post card from Sign of the Beaver telling what has happened in the story"
Here is an excerpt
" Howdy, I am doing well. I sure do miss you Ma and Pa, but it has been a might fun adventure. I met up with a boy called Ben." it goes on to tell five other things that have happened in the story so far. She said there was no rubric telling how many things you had to name.
Ok so the teacher crosses out "called" and writes "named" in place of it. Her score on the paper? 88 and that is the only thing marked????? There is nothing wrong with her using "called"
In fact it was better use of word choice than "named".
This is a new school for my daughter and I am frustrated because someone told me the teachers "already have the "a" students selected from the time the were in first grade at this school and that all there is to it.
