Warning: excessive bragging. :)
Had to jot down the comment from Bunny’s excellent report card… the only item which she has not yet reached or exceeded grade standards for the end of 2nd grade is handwriting. Her reasoning? I have my good handwriting and my fast handwriting. She’s not interested in middle ground on the topic. :)
Anyway, the teacher’s comment:
Bunny continues to do well in 2nd grade! She has done so well in reading groups—improving her fluency, decoding, comprehension, and response to literature. She is incredibly expressive and talented as well in readers’ theater! Her writing is very detailed, we will still work on mechanics and spelling. math continues to be easy for Bunny as well. She is a joy to have in class each and every day! Thanks for all your hard work, Bunny!
As much of a struggle as it can be to get this child to sit down and read, and as impatient as she is with herself, it is gratifying to see it all bearing fruit. Her teacher also added, in the conference, that she wishes she had a classroom full of Bunnys. High praise, indeed.
