We have a first grader at our house. Got his grade card the other day and it's written right on there. We're so proud of his accomplishments in literacy and reading, especially his sight words. He was supposed to know 50 by the end of the year and he knew 85. He's also reading one level higher than expected and socred above-average in math. I don't recall reading or knowing any math in kindergarten so I'm pretty impressed. Just need to work on a few behavioral issues and using a ruler and hopefully things will go well for him this next school year. Here he is with his diploma.
The week before school was out he got to practice eating lunch at school in preparation for being there all day next year. Luckily I had bought his lunch box in advance and he was so excited to try it out.
Looking forward to enjoying our summer together before he goes off to big-kid school.
