It seems that your daughter is following a family pattern of being quiet and introverted and this is counting against her at school. It would be a very bad idea to keep her back a year as another year in the same Grade R will only knock her confidence further. You know that your daughter is bright and smart so you need to help her to interact with the teacher and with other children.Invite a friend of hers from the school to come and play with her at your home. Having a good friend at school is a real confidence booster.Let her make something at home that she can take to the teacher to show her such as a drawing or painting. Also teach her to write her name somewhere on the drawing.You have still got a good few months to help your daughter to boost her confidence at school.
