On Tuesday afternoon, I went to Avery’s fall conference. I had a good idea of what to expect, but I was still a little shocked at her math scores.
According to the test she took for reading, she is at a 3.8 grade level (she’s in fourth grade), so this was encouraging. I just wish I could get her to read more at home. (I wish my kids had inherited my love for reading – and Harry Potter!)
Her math test was not as encouraging, but it’s still early in the year and there’s time to turn it around. The test results broke down exactly what she needs help with, so I am making a plan for her to work on during breaks and the weekends. Less device time, more brain time. (My kids no longer have devices, so that’s one problem solved.)
All in all, she’s doing well in a new school, with new friends. Next year, she will be a middle-schooler, so it’s important to give her all the skills she needs to succeed now.
Next up is Lauren’s conference, and then her IEP meeting in December. According to her new teacher, she writes IEPs a little differently than others, so I’m anxious to see what she will come up with.
