Today was Emmie's last day of Third grade! She enjoyed a fun and fattening ice cream party in class today! I am hearing she can eat her weight in caramel syrup and sprinkles! She also received her report card today. The report card is no surprise, "Emmie is helpful and caring.....Emmie tends to rush through her work...her scores are inconsistent....." blah blah blah. I have never liked report cards. To me, they don't show what my daughter is capable of or really where her weaknesses are. I just receive random numbers on a page. For example, in the section of Language Arts it says, "read grade level text fluently" and she scored a "2" for approaching. What exactly does that mean? It has never really made sense to me.
We have had a lot of huhs and whats lately. But I'm going to chalk that up to the over stimulation of the last weeks of school. Those last weeks are nuts! So, we'll see what the next few weeks bring us.
On another note, Emmie has completed her second evaluation for Speech and Language. We met with Carol Gray, a speech pathologist, and over three days she completed a full battery of testing on Emmie. We are waiting for the report from Mrs. Gray in the hopes of resubmitting that to the insurance company. If you have had children in California schools then you know fourth grade SUCKS. I'm not sure we can survive fourth grade without the extra speech therapy. We'll see what happens.
Summer is here!!!!!
