Em came home yesterday and informed us that she had scored the highest score among all of the fifth graders in the school in reading. “It was nine hundred something,” she said, “and the second highest score was Azule, she was a seven hundred something.”
As a result of her high score, Em will be moved to the 6th grade reading teacher’s class along with the other girl, Azule.
I couldn’t help but smile.
Less than three months after entering public school for the first time – and them being concerned that she might not be able to read at all – it has been quite a change.
I would like to think that Em is changing how some of these teachers might view homeschoolers. She’s bright, outgoing, and involved. I can’t help but be proud.
