Hannah's 1st Kindergarten Conference

For those of you far away and are wondering how Hannah is doing in school, I wanted to share what we learned at her first parent/teacher conference. She's doing great! Academically, she is right on track. This is her report card. I don't know if you'll be able to read it. She got S+ in almost everything except math. She is having some trouble with her numbers, mostly just writing them backwards (including writing 17 71). She also got S's in Science, Social Studies, Music and Spanish. I think that means that she particiaptes and does fine. The comment at the bottom says, "Hannah is sometimes saddened to the point of tears with separation anxieties, this first quarter at school." We mostly talked about that in the conference. Sometimes she just gets sad and cries and we don't really know why. Mrs. King has tried everything she knows and sometimes she still just cries. We don't really know what to do. She is excited about school, enjoys school and has no problem going or coming home. HMMMMmmmmm. I did ask if she is having more better days than sad days and Mrs. King said yes. So, we are making progress and hopefully those days will come to an end.

The following pictures are some projects that Hannah has done at school over the course of time that Mrs. King gave to us at the conference. I tried to put them in order from oldest to newest. If you look at the way she wrote her name on this paper compared to some papers later on, you'll see a big difference!

This is an "odd dog."

This is a lion!

CUTE PROJECTS!! I might 'steal' some of them for our chillens to do! ;) This is good news that Hannah is doing well! Both of our children, too, do lots of 'dyslexic'-type writing, but so far it seems like nothing that would be considered abnormal.... eek! ;)

I really like the projects as well and think Hannah will continue to do better all the time. How great that she is doing so well academically!
