McKenna is doing SOOOO well in school. Mrs. Stevenson said she is extremely impressed with her reading, writing and math skills. She says that McKenna has a desire to learn and work hard and that she always has very thoughtful responses in class. She needs to work on letting others have a turn to share. Mrs. Stevenson says that when they are reading as a group McKenna gets impatient and blurts out the word before other kids have a chance to sound it out. Part of me is like, "Nice, figuring things out really fast" and the counselor, inclusive side of me is like "everyone needs their turn and an opportunity to learn!" So we are talking about blurting and voice level at home. But we really couldn't be more proud of McKenna.
It is amazing how fast she has learned this year. She can read books that have 2-3 sentences a page, write short "stories" do basic addition and subtraction...I really am so very impressed at her progress. She really loves art, drawing on the computer and playing math games. My wish for her would be to always have a love of learning and to do her best in everything she does! So proud of you little bug!
On a fun note, Kenna has been complaining about the tangles she gets in her hair. She has wavy hair in the back and HATES combing it. So, we got it all chopped off! Cut 5 inches...she looks so grown up!!
