Redstorm Posted May 17, 2004 Report Share Posted May 17, 2004 DD has a question and is too young to ask herself. Last week, during a class, the teacher was showing new center work he wanted done. Some of the students were following along with the teacher. My daughter has always been taught to watch the teacher first, then, when the teacher instructs the students to do it together, then she does the work. She memorizes the moves without moving until the teacher instructs them to begin. This is a new school we are trying out. There are some older girls in the class and they haven't been rude to my daugher, in fact they ignore her. Except for this one class where one of the girls made a comment to the rest of the girls that my daughter needed some sugar so she would move her #$$. One of the other girls asked who she was speaking about and the reply from a 3rd girl was...the young one. My daughter did what she has done in the past with this type of situation...she ignored them and did what she has been taught before. She did however, ask me to find out what is customary in other classes. Should she mimick the teacher while they are trying to explain a certain move or should she listen and watch the teacher until he/she is done and then do the moves? DD is concerned that when she goes away to her first SI that she will be doing something wrong and doesn't want to be made fun of. Quote Link to comment
