Anyway, he likes to climb up in my closet to the top shelf and hang out on the suitcases. He's silly.
Ok, now on to the super star kids. It's always an adjustment the beginning of the year and getting used to a new teacher and their expectations. Ben has been doing great and got all A's on his report card. He also got perfect attendance. Go Ben!
Noah got almost all O's with an S in handwriting. He can get lazy sometimes. He's in 2nd grade, but he is the youngest kid in his class and I felt he needed to start pushing himself with reading. He was still reading easy reader type books. He needed chapter books. So, I had him start the Magic Tree House series, which Ben loved. And he read the first book in less than 24 hours. They are like 70 pages long, so I was super happy and proud. But, I wasn't sure how he'd do with the quiz they take at school on the books they read. Did he comprehend enough? Yep! He passed the quiz. Then, this week, he started the second book, finished it in two days and took the quiz today and got 100%! Yea!
And Miss Emily had a huge adjustment this year. In her other school, honors just meant that you got pulled to do some fun projects, like solar cars and stuff like that. But, in Jr. High, she has all honors classes, meaning she has advanced curriculum and it's taught at a faster pace. It's been an adjustment. She honestly had never needed to really study for a test before. She's been working on all that and helping her study and she got Principal's List! Plus, David and I are learning a whole bunch of stuff we forgot when we help her study. Ask me about the Earth's core or the Magna Carta. I'm full of knowledge again! It's awesome! :)
She got one B, but because they are honors classes they count as higher, so it's still above a 4.0 gpa. I'm so happy for her. Look at that....a 90 in College Prep Pre Algebra! Holy moly, she is awesome.
Of course he 2 highest scores were Art and PE. That's my girl!
