I went to Lily's school conferences today... I'm like elated with how it went.
First, she is above grade level in much of her work. Her reading test labeled her as a level 16, when they try to get kids to level 18 by the end of 1st grade. She said she would be doing an absolute disservice to Lily id she didn't try to get Lily to a middle to end of 2nd grade level in reading. Which makes me happy, because we work on her homework and workbooks at home, but I want to make sure she isn't working at the level of other kids, because her capability is higher. I will not skip her a grade, but she does deserve to be worked at a higher level.
But then she started gushing about Lily, saying she is the type of student every teacher wants because she listens, loves to learn, comes up with the most inquisitive questions and advanced explanations. She said she doesn't worry about her in any subject at all. The only thing I was worried about was her numbers and letters backwards.. I wanted to make sure it wasn't dyslexia or dyscalculia. She said she does need to practice writing, but they don't typically worry about that until 3rd grade. That eases my mind, because she really is getting a lot of stuff backwards. I just want to get her help now if she does have some problems.
Anyways, I'm really proud of her I feel like I push her too hard sometimes, but I can see how it works out because she has the capability to do so well.
