Talking to teacher about reading
I like almost everything they are doing in my 5yo's K class, the teachers are super but there seems to be a lot of time working on reading: sounding out words, sight words, etc. I am starting to wonder if I should speak up and ask the teacher to address other aspects of reading (comprehension, etc). My 5 yo is already reading easy chapter books so I realize she is somewhat advanced but there are many other kids that are reading well also. From what I understand, about 2 hours a day are spent on some aspect of reading. My child isn't bored. Should I approach the teacher and, if so, what should I say? I feel like I am asking them to change the class for my kid but I think there are other reading skills these kids need to learn as well or is 2 hours a day typical?
