    I'm a teacher: logical consequence - do the missed work at lunchtime

    I think missing the prac to do the homework was more than enough punishment

    That is way over the top and in all of my years at school and not handing in hw I never had a punishment like that.

    Does she have a problem with your son? For the first offence it just doesn't match up.

    My DS also has learning difficulties and I see how at the age of 5 he struggles. Fast forward into the future if any teacher was giving him that sort of punishment, I would be completely livid. It's not easy on them.

    Definitely talk to the teacher about it. I'm sorry your DS (and you) had to go through that.

    I don't know how he feels about my son as this is the first year he has had him. he only has for manual Arts. The teacher didn't like my eldest daughter but she never gave him a opportunity to give her a hard time. Hmm I don't like him. i think he is on a power trip most of the time.


    Yes this was his first offence. He has had two small accidents so far in man arts (massive growth spurt making him uncoordinated) so maybe he thinks he isn't trying. The sad part is ds was so excited about finally being able to do manual arts.

    completely and utterly innappropriate. I am livid for both you and your son. I would have written the teacher a note telling them he would not be doing the extra assignment as it was unneccessary, and just missing the prac to completel the homework he'd missed was plenty enough.

    He also made more than half the class write out the uniform policy in full because tey wore the wrong shoes on free dress day (their first in highschool) DS had the right shoes on Thank God so he didn't have to do that too.

    Sounds like a power trip to me. I'd be having words with the teacher and if that didn't work talk to the principal. It's not on to hand out a punishment to a child who can't achieve the punishment. Definitely unfair .

    Agreed! Sounds like a moron who likes seeing kids punished for stupid reasons and dealing out inappropriate punishments. Is he a young inexperienced teacher or one who should know better?

    Definitely sounds over the top to me. Particularly with your DS's issues.

    Does the teacher know about these? Understand how difficult simple tasks can be in your DS's situation? It sounds as though he needs to be advised ASAP - and if he is aware already, then shame on him.
