My son is 7 and his homework is this:
Discuss the declining honey bee population and its environment and economical impact.
I think this is so advanced for his class and I wanted to know what others think (I mean, he still laughs at poop!)
Wow, that's quite a subject for a 7 year old.
I don't think my daughter touched on environmental issues until 7th or 8th grade!
Perhaps the teacher was trying to impress some individual parents by giving advanced assignment to the class as a whole?
Don't be embarrased! I'm sorry I'm not being very clear.
My son's first teacher did not make the changes. That was my problem with him.
I moved my son out of that class and into another class with a different teacher.
He was at a small school, and parents were sometimes able to choose teachers.
Oh, I see. Thanks. :)
I am curious though and I do hope that my follow-up questions would not sound offensive. Did the teacher change his attitude or teaching plans later on? Or did he hold any grudges against anyone for having a student taken out of his homeroom?
I'm glad I got it right this time. And I don't mind any questions you might ask.
I'm not sure, but I don't think the teacher changed his plans. And I don't think the problem was really that he had a bad attitude. I think he just thought what he was doing was the right thing, and I'm sure for some kids it was. Just not mine. My son worked very diligently on the work he was given, but if he had stayed in that class I think he probably would have been the one who got a really bad attitude.Through the years I was at the school quite a lot, both as a parent then as an employee. I saw that teacher regularly, and he was always pleasant... at least on the outside.
