Jeannie is loving school...except for recess. For whatever reason, the other kids still don't include her at recess. The two other girls still go off by themselves and the boys all go off together. I invited her class to her birthday party recently, thinking some time together outside school might help. Only the two girls came- and they went off by themselves. I never heard from any of the boys' families. She knows all these kids from last year, so it's strange that they act this way. While I hate to think of her by herself at recess, my gut feeling is to wait and talk to the teacher at conference time. Since she's a middle schooler now, I'm not sure how much to help her with things, if that makes sense. Plus, the non-response to the birthday invitation makes me wonder about the attitudes of some of the families. What to do?
