We received Eli's report card yesterday. I am so proud of him! He's doing really well in school. All 4s and 5s for effort (which is the mark I care about most), except one 3 in Communicating in French (he's graded on a scale from 1-5 with 3 being "grade level"). I was even happier to read his IPP (Individual Program plan) which stated that he met and exceeded his goal for attention and calling out in class and did not require further strategies at this time. This means that, although he has ADHD, his attention and focus is that of a typical 7yr old within the classroom. Yay!! He continues to require enrichment for the gifted portion of his IPP and has been asked to prepare a verbal presentation in French that incorporates the areas which need enrichment (reading, math, science, language). I can't wait to see what he comes up with!
Update on yesterday's post... You'll be happy to know that I've actually accomplished something today. I am nearly finished my paperwork (I WILL finish this week!) and cleaned out the spare room closet, both kids' closets and... *drum roll*... MY closet..... I managed a full orange bag of garbage and two blue bags of clothing... Woot!
