Remember the "spelling test teacher"? I could just cry. Today at dinner Hailey complained that her day was not that good. At centers, she just sat at her seat and colored. Why? Well, there are 5 kids in the group. They were supposed to play what sounds like "Memory" with flashcards - to make compound words. Two girls paired up and two boys paired up and they said that she couldn't play. She said she went to her desk and cried only a little, then colored. After a while, the teacher asked her why she was at her seat, and she told her. The teacher told Hailey that the boys said she could play, but Hailey said she didn't HEAR them say that. Then they said she could play the after-center game with them, and she said no thanks. Her teacher asked her if she had read any books lately so Hailey told her the name of a book, and the teacher let her take an AR test on the book instead. I just don't get it. The teacher said before that Hailey has a hard time assimilating into a group, I said because of her hearing, she said no because she doesn't know how. Ok, so she thinks Hailey doesn't know how to join, so why isn't she helping her join in?!?!?!? Honestly, and I just asking for too much?!?!? This is the most painful experience I have gone through as a parent. Seeing her heart and her spirit so sad.
