Report Cards Came Home

I’m excited for both my boys. Yesterday they came come with their 3rd 6 week report cards.

My pre-k son is still struggling but he is doing better at getting directions and now speaking more in his class but still very behind. We will be getting him re-evaluated soon.

My first grader brought home some decent grades. He could be doing better but the two best things were that he made honor roll and that he is now an advance reader for his grade where at the beginning of the year he was still struggling to know very simple 2-3 letter words.

Yes we have worked with him and it helps he has to read for 20 mins. every night for homework.

But if this is your first time reading into the life of my family then you might not know that both my son’s have speech delays and I was just getting used to the fact that both of them will be behind many in their class for a long time. I’m super excited for my first grader now being advance for his grade level in reading now we just need to work on his handwriting which he still struggles tremendously with fine motor skills.

What amazing things has your kids done lately that you are super excited about? I’d love to read them. It’s ok brag about your kids, I really do want to read them. It’s an amazing feeling to have your kids succeed at things.

    My kids are 5 and (next week will be) 7, and I have a 2yo. My 2yo just turned 2yrs in October, and hardly would speak any words at all, but lots of gibberish. He would get so so angry when he would try to communicate and we wouldn’t understand him. Literally just over Christmas break, his vocabulary went from like 2-3 words to maybe 15 or 20 and counting! It is so much easier with him being able to tell us what he wants or communicate verbally.

    With my daughter, she’s in 2nd grade (started early) and she’s an amazing reader. She was reading well at 4 and reads at about a 4-5th grade level now. But she is stuck on math. We are working on adding multiple 3 digit numbers together and carrying, and she’s hating it!! I’m trying to come up with creative ways to keep her from getting burnt out like every problem completed = x amount of computer time, etc. That seems to help. I struggled with math as a kid though, so I know it’s not like everyone is going to be a math person.

    Then with my 5yo, he’s working just now on learning to read and he’s slow and steady. He will read ok if we go verrrrrrry slow and the words are simple, so I’ll take it. But he isn’t ready to read real books and such yet, and I wish he’d hurry up so we could do exciting stuff!!

    1. That is awesome. I know how you feel about the hurry and read better because for so long we have been waiting. Both the hubby and I are avid readers and we’d like our kids to be but we have to realize they are not us they are unique. Its wonderful when kids can communicate even when we hardly understand. Thanks for sharing.

    Great job! I have a first grader as well that is getting special help with reading. There are about 5 kids out of his class of 27 that go every day and work with a literacy specialist. He’s really improved since this started. Our neighbor also happens to be a retired reading teacher and she has recently started working with him three days a week so I’m really expecting him to “get it” soon. Keep up the good work Mom.
