They all went well.
Mike is doing much better with his reading. He is still not as high as he needs to be but he has grown throughout the year so that is a plus. Maybe since he has finally learned those basic sight words that make it so hard we will see a jump soon. His behavior has improved even though he slips up every now and then. Definately less than in the past! Mikes music teacher said he is exceptional with music but needs to watch his talking out. I am not surprised. He loves anything that has to do with singing or instruments.
Kenzie is doing great and her teacher says she is wonderful! Her reading and math have jumped from border low to average to border average to above average. This is huge since it is in both areas. We also put her in an extra writing lab for six weeks. I didn't know how much it would help but it was something extra she wanted to do. It just ended but her teacher saw so much growth in her writing during that time she is amazed at how great she is doing across the board and of course her behavior is exceptional for 4th grade. Her music teacher also said that she exceeds expectations with her class.
Kaylin is in middle school and they do student led conferences here so she had to put together a LOT of her work from all her classes and then set down and present it. She did great and her work is wonderful. She does so good in school compared to a couple of years ago when I remember having to force her to finish anything. Her teachers all love her and are so glad she is here. She has made friends in her classes and is very "chipper and friendly" at school. I was so excited because while she is wonderful at home and is not a problem I don't think those are the words I would have chose to use with her personality here. We are so proud of how well she has done in just the short time she has been here. 3 months and completely adjusted is great!
Three great conferences.. . What else could I ask for!
