My son just started kindergarten and he is a little behind in a number of areas. Every day we review the work he did in school and he is proud to show me what he did. Sometimes he has done something incorrectly & the teacher may have written a little note or circled it. I like to go over it with him so he knows. I never say "this is wrong" or anything like that. For instance he had to put pictures of a snowman being built in order. He had the finished product first, then the ball, etc.., all out of order. So I talked to him about how you build a snowman, what each picture represented and we talked about the order they should be in. He also had practiced drawing the number "10" and he was writing it backwards - "01" I told him he wrote his numbers well, but they were backwards and the 1 goes first then the 0. Meanwhile, when his dad sees the work (we're divorced) he tells my son "great job!" or he tells me "he'll figure it out". I feel like its my job to help teach him too, not just the teacher's. To act like he is getting everything right...that might make him feel good, but isn't that a great disservice to his education?
