We have been luck this year so far with Emily. She has been very healthy and hasn't had to miss any time from school due to illness. The 6 days that she was absent from school was the extended vacation days which we allowed her to take so that she could go with Daddy to visit Grandma over Christmas break.
As you can see from the graph below, Emily has made great progress in all areas since the beginning of the school year. She is testing At or Above her age level.
The top green boxes contain the scores from the "beginning" of the school year. The bottom row of green boxes reflex Emily's Mid Year Test Scores. Note the red boxes in each row? These indicate where Emily incorrectly answered a question. Once she fails to approperately answer 3 questions in a row that part of the test is complete.
The only real problem which Emily's teacher addressed with us, is the fact that Emily is unable to stay focused on what she is suppose to be doing. Emily is too curiouus as to what the other children are doing and she wants to help them on their work/project.
We were given the "core" words that Emily will be expected to know next year. So that we can start helping her work on them. The teacher also sufggested that we continue to encourage Emily to practice her writing skills. She also gave us a few very good websites that the school uses for the children in the computer lab, that Emily really enjoys exploring and learning from.
Emily is a very happy, birght, curious, creative, imaginative, and caring little girl. Now if only I could convince her to keep her room cleaned up from all of the toy clutter!
