First off the whole class was rather crazy acting, so they all lost out on on an extra recess. I guess Isaak wasn't acting out (so he tells me). He said, "I was good Mom."
Next he got made fun of from one boy in particular saying, "Isaak likes Maddie." I guess that kid was sent to his desk. Isaak's getting sick of him saying that.
Next Isaak drew a self portrait. All the people at his table laughed. I know they are Kindergarteners. They aren't mature. I don't know if the teacher heard the kids, or not. I will be jotting down some things in his daily folder. Really just a please watch out for this behavior. Being a teacher, hearing laughing, I would assume that the kids are having fun, enjoying the project. It wouldn't occur to me that they would be picking on someone's drawing. Do I blame the teacher? No. I just want her to know about the situation.
What were they making fun of? The fact that Isaak's eyes were so big in the drawing, the fact that he has eyelashes on his self portrait.
They made fun of the feet to. Isaak was wearing sandals today. He put the same pattern his shoes had on his drawn feet.
I told Isaak that I thought the drawing is great. I know it's not a master piece. He's 5. It's good for 5! I love his attention to detail! He seemed happy that I liked it.
I feel bad for Isaak! :(
