and I so hope I've not pieced this together correctly. He had a good day, except for the 2 incidents I posted about. He has a deal that if he has a good day and gets all of his work done, he gets to go to recess at the end of the day with a friend who's in the grade above him. Except yesterday, he didn't. He said the principal made the decision, and was very angry that he had a good day but didn't get to go. I just kept asking, saying there had to be a reason she didn't let you go to recess. Finally, late last night, he said there was. I asked what it was (keep in mind, conversation with him is often very fragmented). He said "friday and today, but I had a good day today". Did she yank his recess on Tuesday as his punishment for what he did on Friday, despite having met the criteria for going to the recess yesterday???
