hard being a teacher and a parent!

My daughter just started Kindergarten this year, but I feel like she is repeating preschool for the 3rd year in a row.
She is very bright, knew 50+ sight words when she left preschool last year, can do simple addition and subtraction, is reading at a DRA level 4 (the end of K goal in my state), and yet she comes home and tells me she is 'learning' the letter A this week!!!!

We have spoken to the teacher about doing more challenging work with her, with no change.
So, I spoke to the principal and am awaiting her reply about getting her more differentiated work.

It is just frustrating for me as I know she should be doing more, and improving on her reading/math skills. Not just repeating letters and sounds that she already knows. I don't want her to miss out on the 'fun' kindergarten activities, but I don't want her abilities to go to waste either!

Thanks for listening!!
