4 yr Old Son on mine .Yet another day, yet another phase and yet another issue.
So my son has been going to preschool/Montessori school for almost a year now.
At school as usual they have this "show&tell" session" for all the kids to come forward and talk about any subject of their choice.
I either ask my son to do as he likes - i mean prepare the way he wants or I tell him the pointers or short sentences to help him prepare better.So basically itsa very collaborative effort.we sit together and discuss the topic .we even sit together and make some craft work that he can talk about at school.ex - lamp/car/school buss/traffic lights/flower/laptop..many topics like this.we actually sit and make such things and then i help my sn prepare for his show and tell.
i have noticed many a times that at school he either forgets or he tells something totally different and much below his standard of compositions.
on a general note - my son speaks very well english and speaks very well at home and with people whom he knows well.Even at school his teachers have mentioned his comm skill exceeds expectations
Now my concern is -
1) Am i preparing him correctly for show & tell
2) Why does he not say the same thing at school which he has practiced well at home .
3) Is it a no big deal issue or Am I being too fussy about it ? or Am i pushing too much ?
Just wondering if any of the parents have faced a similar issue.
Apologies if i have missed any info and i am Happy to answer any questions you may have for me.
