Proud Mama

Brian and I went to Katie’s 2nd parent-teacher conference yesterday. She got a great report. Her teacher said that she is very neat & meticulous with her work and that she was right where she needed to be. She also won a $20 Wal-Mart gift card for completing her required reading every month. Only her and one other student in her class have done it faithfully every month. She also said that she was going to put Katie in the Advanced Reading program. When she goes to the library every week she will get to pick out 2 books instead of 1. The 2nd book will be from a select group and she will bring it home and read it a few times and then take a “test” on the book the following week. The test will be just to see how much of what she is retaining from what she reads. This is supposed to be a no pressure kind of program, so her teacher said just to let her read the book a couple of times…however many she wants and to keep it light so that it doesn’t become too much like a chore to her. We’re really proud of her and I’m especially glad to see that she likes reading since I also enjoy it so much! Oh and we also were told that she has a bit of a tattling problem (shocker!) 🙂

    That is wonderful!! I guess her reading skill is a gift she got from her reading machine mother!=-) I am so proud of her! Tell her I love her for me and give a kiss from her aunt Nana!

    My oldest daughter LOVES the Advanced Reading program – she says the tests on the computer is way fun. I’m so excited for Katie – go Katie!!
