We had them on Monday, but this has been a busy week...both kids have been to the doctor and each missed a day of school this week! All seems better today though. Anyway, meetings went very well with both teachers. Of all the testing they do with kinder, Emily scored above the norm in everything. Her teacher says that this testing session is just to give them a starting point...some of the things they test on have not yet been introduced to the students. With that in mind, there are a couple of math/numbers test that the teachers expect the kids to score a zero. They are timed test. Em made it through about half of the test...and she got the answers correct! Her early reading skills are very well developed too...this we already knew as she has been sounding words out and trying to read for a few weeks now. Wyatt's testing has him scoring at a level they HOPE to have second graders at by the end of the year. He does have some issues with his speech, but we are thinking it may have to do with his hearing. We have an appt. with an Ear, Nose & Throat doc next month. Hopefully he will have tubes soon and his teacher feels like we see a big difference then. It was good to hear from their teachers that they are both doing so well.
