First Parent Teacher Conference

This week was my kindergartner's first parent teacher conference. I have been incredibly stressed out personally and professionally lately, so it really sneaked up on me. 

Oh, my goodness. I couldn't be more proud. The very first thing she said to me was, "Your son is the reason why I still do what I do." She spent the next twenty minutes raving about him. His behavior, his focus, his listening skills - you name it! 

His pre-reading skills diagnostics results were pretty great, too. In the three areas, he received 5/8, 7/8, and 8/8. Not too shabby! And she said he is reading on an intermediate level right now. 

happy

So proud of my little scholar, especially since we had a rough start to the school year with his original teacher leaving two weeks after classes began. 

Who else has had a conference yet?

We had ours last night. Raistlin is right on track and seems to be a favorite with his teachers. We have a few things to work on....mostly him with his 'I don't know how" or "I'm too little' excuses. He likes to be babied- so we need to get him to be more independent and finish things on his own.

We don't have conferences until late November, but I still remember my first with DS when he was in kinder. The teacher told me that she wished she could take him to the copy room and filler her class with copies of him because he was such a good student. LOL Made me pretty proud!

Good job Momma!

Lol! Now that's a good compliment! My son's class is pretty large and she said there are quite a few behavior problems going on, but he was completely oblivious to the antics of others. I wonder how to get him to be so perfectly unaware of misbehavior at home... lol!

They try, don't they! My son has been fighting me on the issue of jeans. He hates jeans and says no one helps him with the button when he can't do it himself. I brought it up with his teacher and she said, "What? I button [another student]'s pants every day!" haha. I told that to my son verbatim so he would stop using that excuse with me. ; )

I had mine yesterday afternoon. My DS (Kindergarten) is doing excellent. I was beyond happy. He does need some help with his fine motor skills but the teacher said that between home and school, it will correct itself.

My DD (2nd grade) has made huge improvements. She is having issues with math, printing and reading. The teacher is sending me home a list of websites where I can print out worksheets for math and printing. As for reading, she is going to meet with a reading specialist once a week. I will know more about what her issues are after the intial assessment. But the teacher indicated that she is having issues reading and understanding written directions.

We had one and it went really well like yours.  She has really flourished in this short time at school (less than 2 months into year) and has made great strides in areas she just plain resisted last year.   She is in 2nd grade and with a more experienced teacher.  Their personalities seem to mesh better than the teacher last year.

We also had ours yesterday. Our Kindergartner is doing very well, although she has a problem with being distracted due to boredom.Her teacher said she is not disruptive, just lets her eyes wander.
When we walked into our 2nd grader's classroom, her teacher said she is perfect. LOL
