Mama2four Posted January 14, 2011 Share Posted January 14, 2011 I was looking at a 3rd gr. public school reading textbook tonight while we were at my dd's dance class. I noticed that at the end of each story, it had one page with a grammar concept. One week it introduced adjectives, the next week verbs, and so on. Not very much attention was given to each concept from week to week, so I asked another mother there if she knew if the children were taught grammar with a different resource than the reading textbook, and she said she didn't know. So she asked her child if they had an English textbook, and the girl didn't know what her mother was talking about. So I asked her if they had learned anything about sentences, nouns, verbs, etc. and she said, 'yea, I guess so'. On the way home my dd told me that the girl came up to her and said, 'your mom must be a teacher from a long time ago because she was asking me some crazy stuff'. Also, the girl's 15 year old sister who is a sophomore in ps didn't know what a predicate was. She said they don't do stuff like that, they only read novels. Anyway, I just thought it was hilarous that the girl said I must be a teacher from a long time ago! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
