Meet Matthew's monster! His name is Mario Kart. He lives in Las Vegas and loves chicken strips to eat! Matthew didn't finish writing yet - but it was too cute to not take a photo of!
Teacher conferences were today. He's doing really well. His math and reading skills are at the high end of 1st/2nd Grade level (he's in 6th grade). His comprehension skills are going up. His retell is really kicking into gear. He is looking at the calendar at school and at home and telling what is coming up.
The District has a new way of looking at/grading things this year. They are seeing him as a 6th grader and grading him accordingly, which seems kinda wrong. Makes his grades in math and reading much lower than what the actual grade would be. Kinda stinks, so we'll see how it goes!
