End of Year Report in your hand? Even after teaching 10 years with a sound understanding of the ‘ridiculous’ new expectations of young children, I am concerned how these changed goal posts effect the stress of teachers, anxiety of parents and put silent pressures children.
I know this because it’s as relevant in my house as it is in any other. Why?
My children have achieved the best they could for them as individuals and that’s enough for me to glow.
Each child should be judged on their own progression.
In our hearts we would learn how hard they have tried and how much value each teacher has put into developing each child’s understanding of the world. In a nutshell, teachers breath their soul into every child and in return a child grows a love for leaning that Levels can never measure.
Read your reports with pride and love, without comparison and it becomes such a wonderful gift to open.
