Love your ideas!
My 3rd grade son has always loved learning and been excited to be at school. However, this year he is not engaged in what he is supposed to be learning in the classroom.
How can I help and what approach do I take with the teacher. I am not a parent that tells a teacher how to do her job and I am very involved in school. His teacher is retiring after this year and there is no
excitement in the classroom. I was even bored on the last field trip I went on.
I just do not want him to lose his enthusiasm for learning.
Do you have any advise?
Well, the short answer is, "No, I don't have any advice that can magically address the issue with the teacher." What I do suggest is to supplement his learning with your own field trips or fun educational experiences to reinforce how fun learning can be. Also, use this teacher as an opportunity to teach your child some valuable life skills when it comes to dealing with people who he might not see eye-to-eye with. ~Mr. V.
