It is public charter. Yeah I have looked at our local district, which is not same as where my kids go, and also other cities and they all say full day. I really wanted him to be half day.

Thanks everyone for advise. I will continue to look into other options.

Agreed...

Sorry I didn't elaborate much of my problem. I actually liked her the first week of school and after seeing the other kinder teacher I thought I got the luck of the straw. She is nice, quiet and timid. Not really a whipper snapper type. So I thought, cool this may work.

It started going downhill with his consecutive behavior chart degrading. I always nodded my head and apologize to het like I say my son is rambunctious. I am very observant and see most his boy classmates like him. I started feeling not comfortable when I see that LOOK in her face a look like disgust. Not at all any warm feelings. This disturbed me greatly. My son's preschool teachers never had this. They were loving and warm and never complained only say typical behavior for the age. I have expressed many concerns with her to which she reassures me but doesn't do much. I told her I wanted my son to buy lunch a few days she said ok. So I specifically told her one day he is to buy lunch she said ok. Like I said he doesn't talk a lot. When I picked him up he was starving and ate a snack like he was so desperate. I immediately ask teacher if he ate. She played stupid and did her blame game again saying she hands them off to someone else omg I flipped. She told me who to talk to about that I was looking all over school for this person just to try to get procedure of this. Never found her. Now my daughter makes sure she is first one in her class to enter cafeteria just too see he ate as he is finishing when she starts.

And this is a small school. As for learning she is good, but in general good. Not one on one and for him he needs more attention.

Your son might be better off in the regular school in your district. Sometimes the charter schools do not have the same resources for students with extra learning needs that the bigger public school districts have.

Kindergarten is full day here in all the schools I've heard of. Pre-k is half-day. You might talk to the school and see if he could be moved to pre-k for the rest of the year, if he's not ready for kinder yet. You have to qualify for pre-K but having a speech delay should qualify him.

Sorry for being so blunt but, this is YOUR kid, you need to go to that school and get something done.
Take off work or whatever, make yourself a pain in their butt until they take care of the problem.

im still not even sure what the problem is. the teachers complaining about him acting like an xx year old? where xx = his age.

thats about all i got from that incoherent.. rant? youre upset she gave your kid a look? really?

your kid seems oblivious to the looks, as you stated he's having a ball there. so what if she gives him/you dirty looks. the kid doesnt care, isnt being abused (may have missed a meal once n a while, but kids do that) and is learning.

you say he doesnt talk alot, but he shares enough with you to give you the impression that he likes it there...

again, i think the problem might be you and taking things too seriously, but by all means move your kid to a school better equipped to handle him if thats really an issue.

Don't just ask to be moved to another class, but demand it. Have a reason and make your claim. Don't settle for no. But don't be angry when the new teacher is worse.

Thanks for advice I may look into this as option after Christmas break. I may also look into homeschool if I can get some sort of help with speech from district. I homeschool my daughter for two years in her early school years.

Wow you really didn't get it at all. Since I am typing from my Kindle here I will not waste to much effort to respond to you since you obviously are trying to start something.

I never said the look was to my kid I said just a look. Is actually a look I get from her, how silly to think my 5 year old would convey to me a certain "look" . Too funny!

To say as long as a kid isn't being abused is just totally off topic here.I have never mentioned abuse as the problem I have. Also is none of your business if I make a deal of the meal situation. Let's see what happens to you if you are denied food, you are adult you decide that for yourself.

I won't even justify your comment about him not talking but he tells me a lot as I never said he tells me. You are obviously missing point and I think you just wanna argue, well I don't. Just seeking positive advice here. Thanks!
