The lovely Jo at Ojosworld has been a super host this month and will be handing the reins back to me for March! I really hope lots of you will continue to join in and share your happy thoughts. For this week I am just joining in with everyone else!
This week its a complete Proud Mummy edition as we had parents' evening at school tonight:
1) My boy
At his Beaver meeting this week he wrote at lovely prayer as part of his Faith badge:
He is now 2/3 of way towards Chief Scout bronze award after only 13 months as fully fledged Beaver!
As for school he is doing really well. He is a keen reader (even reading on the way into school this morning):
At parents' evening it was great to hear that he is officially 18 months ahead in reading, 6 months for writing and a super star at maths. Just needs to let his brain and hand keep up with each other and not rush!
2) My daughter
She was helping me help at her brother's Beavers this week. It was lovely to watch how patient she was with the youngest children in helping them with their prayer. This was her helping model the Goldilocks mask the Beavers made before half term:
She has been working very hard on completing her half term homework on the SS Great Britain with writing up lots of facts about her launch. It was another great parents' evening for her. Apparently she is so much more settled and focussed now and her teacher loves her quirkiness and willingness to act out scenarios when requested.
Finally she is putting her workings out down in her maths which a) helps reduce silly mistakes b) is enabling her to reach her full potential which is well above that expected for a child at primary. In 3 months her reading age has leapt up 6 months showing how much she is enjoying it. Her writing is already at the level for a year above she needs to think before putting pencil to paper as her ideas or so complex she confuses herself! The one that stunned me was that her spelling age is 14!!!
So proud of both my children this week even if at times they drive me around the bend ;-)
