Today I have the first parent teacher interviews of the year. This is the first year that the girls have been separated, and I am excited to hear how each teacher thinks each kid is going.
One major reason for being keen on hearing teacher feedback is the twins have been mixed up for the last three years. They had two years of pre-school where they got them confused, and in Kindy they were together. I am sure they did get them a bit mixed up, there were comments that I was sure was for the other child and not the one mentioned.
Finally a report for each child and a teacher that will not mix them up! I wonder how much this report will differ from last year?
Do you have twins in the same class? Have they been constantly mixed up and confused with report time or parent teacher night or afternoon? Have you made the change to have your twins in different classes? Has this helped them and the teachers know who is who?
The girls are very different people and I am glad that they can express themselves in different classes. It helps each child be themselves and not compared to their sister. It is hard enough looking exactly like the other person. Having time for you and to allow you to just be is needed.
Have you found that your twins have blossomed after being in separate classes. Did you notice this more when you got the first report card? Or was it during the parent teacher interview?
