Angela and Connor both had their conferences last Thursday (2.21.12) night. It is so much fun to see their progress throughout the year.
Connor is doing well in Kindergarten. He is doing much more than Brian or I did when we were that age such as learning to read and working on addition problems. The teacher said that there have been times where she couldn't find Connor and then she realizes he is over in the book nook "reading" (looking at) books. He could sit for hours doing that. But then he could also sit for hours at anything with a screen. We are working at home to find a nice balance of that for him.
Angela walked into her conference talking about how math is so difficult and how she doesn't feel she is doing very good. Come to find out, her scores are high enough that the teacher has her in the harder math group. No wonder it seems difficult. The teacher and I agreed it is good for Angela to get stretched that way. Here reading scores are up at an 8th or 9th grade level because though she tests up there we are not quite ready for her to be reading all the literature for that age level.
We are so very proud of the two kids!!
