I can't imagine

I can't imagine what it's like to be a kindergarten teacher. You have no idea what's coming into your classroom... no teacher to tell you inside info on each kid... kids coming in who may not have ever held a pencil, much less learned how to write their name.

I understand where you're coming from... I was frustrated when my daughter entered school. I had done all the things the parenting mags told me to do. She was already reading, knew her numbers & how to add/subtract. She was writing stories, etc. She really wasn't challenged in kindergarten.

But once they are in first grade, teachers have a better idea what's going on with students and are able to differentiate with literature groups, etc.

Hang in there and keep supplementing at home. And be patient with that kindergarten teacher... it takes a special kind of person to take that job on!
