Straight A's

Katheryn got her first report card. I couldn't believe it when I saw it. Now I know that she loves school, and is an incredible reader. And she is always bringing home work that she has done, but no homework.

And she got straight A’s. One A+ (in reading of course) and two A- (in writing and music)


We had to complete a section in her report card about what she needs to improve. Um... she got straight A's, what can she improve?
So then I get worried that she's not challenged enough in school and will get bored. So we do have some challenges for her. I have a whole stack of chapter books for Katheryn to read and we talk about her books as she reads them.
But her writing needs to improve (even though she did get an A-). I look at her writing from September to now and there is no comparison. She is getting messier.
Her writing in September is nice and neat. She obviously took time to concentrate on the letters. And now her writing is rushed, she just wants to get the letters down and move on to the next one. I understand being so full of words you just want to get them down! But it is still important to be proud of your printing.

Katheryn's favorite subject is gym. For her report card report, she had to write some goals for the next couple of months. Her #1 goal is to run faster. At my suggestion, she did put neater writing down too.

This is only Katheryn's first report card, and she doesn't really get why we are so proud of her. It's just her normal. We took her out for dinner to celebrate. Her choice! She was just really happy to go out to a restaurant. But I think he favorite part of the dinner was the coffee... just joking, the coffee cup they put her juice in
