My youngest daughter is in Grade 2..there are three Grade 2 classes in our school.
She had an excellent year last year, didn't cry, was very well behaved, did very well with her school work and she loved her teacher and her teacher had alot of time for her and excellent feedback to me.
This year is another story and I don't know if to try to keep going with the teacher she has or to have her swapped to another class.
My daughter has been sent to the "buddy room" for talking in class. I saw her teacher who said that my daughter talks all the time to the kids she sits next too and is extremely disruptive.
I don't believe this to be true. I also don't think she should have been sent to the buddy room for this and now this will be on her report card.
I have been to see the teacher twice, the teacher will not help with a strategy to help my daughter..I asked if my girl is indeed talking too much then can she be moved to a desk by herself so she can concentrate. The teachers answer was to wave her arm around and say "umm but these desks all fit together".....
No help or remedy at all. My daughter is crying not wanting to go to school, her homework isn't getting marked (the teacher said" oh I'll mark it this week" and this teacher is very shy and quiet and even when I speak to her I have to lean in very close to hear her..
I'm going to see the principal tommorrow but I don't know if I should have my girl moved or just to perservere with what we have...your thoughts?

I'd talk to the principal and ask about her being switched. If it was my DD I'd be annoyed with the teacher.

I would ask to talk with both the deputy principal/head teacher and the teacher about finding a way they can help your child do her best.
If you still aren't satisfied than ask for her to be moved. I am firm believer of working with at teacher if you can.

Absolutely agree with you and that is why I've been to see her twice but she just will not offer me anything....is it that hard to find a desk for her to sit by herself so she has a chance to concentrate..my daughter said to me that she wants to sit by herself so she can work....

I can see that, that is why you need to get the meeting with her superior and her. She needs to realise that she needs to provide a environment for your child so she can work. I have two with special needs and i know I come across a few teachers that have needed extra support from someone higher up to help them understand that it is in their (the teachers) best interest to work with you to help your child succeed. Getting a desk of her own is the easiest of all the suggestion that I would come up with.

Thank you, if I can avoid moving her I will because she has her little friends in her class, not that she wouldn't make more but it's a move nontheless..x

yeH as others have said first I'd try with principal And teacher to work out a plan- it's a teachers job to cater fr each child in the class so she needs to try work with your child.
