Bird’s first quarter is over. I haven’t received her report card, but I did receive a packet of testing and evaluation material. I’m expecting good things based on those papers and the number of comments like “100%”, “awesome!” and “great”. This mama is floating on cloud nine!
One evaluation the school does is to test her reading skills. Mrs. G had previously told us Bird tested extremely high. Mrs. G told me the score, and I knew she was excited about it, but apparently I didn’t get the significance. To close out the quarter, they tested the kids again and sent home the results in the packet. This time, Mrs. G circled Bird’s score and, with a red Sharpie, drew an arrow to the grade level Bird’s score corresponded to. The arrow didn’t point to 4th grade, which is what I had assumed a high score would indicate for a 3rd grader. Nope. It pointed to 7th grade. I was stunned.
Keep up the good work, Bird!
