My daughter is very smart and in first grade. I worked with her over the summer and she loved doing the work. She is now in first grade with the same teacher she had last year. But, this year they are being graded. My daughter gets periodic Fs on tests, although I know she can do the work and understand it because she does the homework, computer work and classwork just fine. I am thinking I have a problem with the teacher (we have already had a conference). I dont feel the teacher is teaching the students, how to be a student. For example, the first week of school my daughter got Fs in classwork, because her name was not on the paper. The teacher has since corrected it. But, shouldn't a teacher especially of first grade, be helping and reminding the children to put their names on the paper. Just today I found out she got an F on a science test, while talking to her I realized she didnt understand that she can answer "solid" liquid" "gas" more than once on the test. Shouldn't the teacher have explained that?
She is a very nice lady, but my child is suffering. What should I do?
