Kind of worried...*updated*

Colton has his testing today. He has to spell 26 of 33 words correctly, I KNOW he can do it. His teacher KNOWS he can do it. He's done it a million and one times. At school and at home. And has always been ahead of the class.


But he woke up this morning with an, "I'm not doing it" attitude and I know how he gets. He may or may not even TRY. And it's driving me NUTS!!!

None of the million and one times he's done it matter today. If he doesn't do it today, he goes to kindergarten again next year.


Update: he did take the test!! Results are here (print out, they have to keep the student's papers). He said he spelled "what" by accident, lol.

He says they didn't take it yesterday. There's no note in his backpack, so I have no clue.

 I am confused ... your kindergartener needs to spell 26 words correctly?  I mean, I would think the focus should be more on reading and word recognition at this point, not spelling 26 words.  Where in NC are you?

 And so glad that the teacher communicated with you about "why" he didn't take the test ... grrrr, that only adds more confusion.  Surely, she can imagine how nervous and worried you have been.

Wilkes. He has to be able to read all of the sight words, but spell 26. He can read/spell beyond that. He's been working on 1st grade curriculum for a few months now. I know, the teacher knows, he knows, the school knows he CAN do it. But WILL he do it, is the question....lol.
