Son brought home his report card today. It was highly anticipated since the school started a new policy that did not record the grades from their first grading cycle. They called it the Readiness Period, a time for kids to get introduced to new topics for the year. The first official grades on his report card for the second grade:
S Social Studies
S Physical Education
I can't blame the handwriting because I have the same problem of my hand can't write as fast as brain sends information. Of course I can't tell him that. He has to try to write neater.
He still has to improve on working independently, listening attentively and completing and returning homework, but with all A's, it has been hard for hubby and me to sternly discuss it with him. The 'omission' of homework assignments was discussed in a recent Parent-Teacher Conference recently, so there was no surprise. Imagine his grades if he had actually completed that additional work.
We have been grinning all evening. Hubby even gave me kudos for helping son to get to this point. That was nice too.
It's great to go to bed smiling even though you are exhausted.
