He did the required reading on his reading log and completed the reading worksheet, but what his mom failed to do was sign off on it. I get that my son’s teacher wants parents invested in checking off the completion of every assignment.
I get that she wants parents to know what’s going on, but I’d like to believe this truth is evident by the quality of the work he turns in – by the nicely written penmanship, by his carefully written name scrolled across every worksheet (front and back), and by the parent-completed reading log pictured above. Knowing I have a tendency to be overly sensitive, I took it to Facebook (you know, to the people who know all) to gauge the appropriateness of my reaction. If she becomes confrontational with you when you are being calm or this happens again, THEN involving the principal would be appropriate. Anything else is either an overreaction or sinking to a similar level of tactlessness.
