First Grader needs learning independence to move to 2nd grade


nwdalton March 6, 2014

Does anyone have any suggestions around making your first grader more independent in the classroom? My daughter goes to a great school where individual attention and small groups are used as needed. During my last conference with her teachers, I was told they were concerned about her lack of independence in the classroom and were worried this might hold her back from moving to 2nd grade. I don't want to do this, since she seems to know the work and also it is a small school (1 class per grade). If they did try to hold her back, due to its affect on her self esteem and her seeming to know the work, we would have to find another school. Our family loves the school and the community. Most importantly, she loves it. We have to help her with this issue and now. Any ideas?
