If you believe that there’s no reason to have a parents-teacher meeting in preschool, you are wrong! The targets set at these events are elaborate and inspiring… An Oxbridge application will soon follow a target such as “recognising shapes in everyday objects”. Doesn’t it???
Don’t get me wrong, it is a pleasure to hear about how B and T are progressing, but I struggle to keep a straight face when I read some of the reports. I am also fluent in teacher’s speak, so I can translate the report into English.
T is very confident = T is a little know-it-all
T is curious about the world around him and often asks adults when he wants help in his learning = T keeps on asking WHY? every three seconds
B is able to focus when playing with jigsaws = B never sits down unless there’s a jigsaw to play with
T is learning to share with others = T only snatches toys from other children, but he doesn’t bite or shove them on the floor anymore
B enjoys sharing his knowledge of Italian with his key person = B is cheeky and speaks whatever language he fancies and his key person struggles to understand him
At the end of an evening like this, I go home with the knowledge that both of my boys are growing up well and have a lot of fun with their friends.
That’s all one can ask for.
