Happy Friday! It has been a c-r-a-z-y day. It’s progress report day at school and for some reason that brings about a world of chaos for me. It’s not just the actual 3 days of assessments, but the snagging the kids that are absent, getting those assessments on 1 neat form that is supposed to communicate to parents how the first 4.5 weeks have gone. Of course, every Kindergarten teacher wants to send a glowing report but unfortunately with the standards we have, if 5 year olds are not yet reading 3 letter words, well, they should be very very soon. Never mind that half my class is not speaking the language in which they are learning to read.
