Ok, I'm an elem. teacher so we do not have punishment for not being able to grasp a concept. My nieces teacher sits anyone who can not complete a multiplication test in 2 min., on the curb for recess. They have to do flash cards on the curb during the entire recess for the whole week if they do not perform well on Mondays test. To me this is outragious! Does anyone else follow this same practice? If so can you please explain the motivation behind this practice? She now hates going to school! Oh and they are not doing anything else to help her master this skill. Please explain.
