Hello everyone! My name is Melanie and I have three littles that are in elementary school. I have a DS in fifth grade and man this year is HARD. He is very smart and brings home straight A's on his report card, but with his behavioral and emotional problems, this year has been trying. I have been at the school almost weekly since school started and we have had multiple disciplinary problems from loss of recess clear to suspension ALREADY!
The second DS is in second grade and does amazing. Again a straight A student, I am happy to say that we have yet to see the inside of the principles office or the loss of recess unless voluntary. Yes, I said voluntary. He is a very compassionate little boy and has a friend with MR and will give up his recess to help his friend with work that needs to get done.
Last, but far from least, my DD is in first grade and doing wonderfully......if she wasn't a chatty cathy that is. Everyday she loses recess because she can't seem to keep trying. She did try real hard and actually had one whole week of all of her recess and was so proud of herself. Then, apparently being good and quiet wasn't fun anymore because she is right back to where she started with talking all the time. She is a good student, but I have a really hard time getting her to do her homework. Her compliance level is at almost 0% so I feel bad for her teacher and teachers to come.
Welp, those are my my littles. I look forward to telling everyone more about the crazy antics and situations they put themselves in throughout these next few months. I am really excited to hear about all of your little ones, make some new friends, meet some new people. This is gonna be fun!
