Kindergarten through 4th grade with Kenza was hell when it came to her studies. Many, many nights both of us were in tears just trying to get through her homework. Yesterday, I had a meeting with several of Kenza’s 6th grade teachers to decide if she is ready to be dismissed from the dyslexia program at school. I’m happy to report that everyone agreed she was ready. It’s been a long road, but Kenza will enter 7th grade without any modifications to her curriculum. Hooray!
On a side note I asked the teachers how her behavior was in class. Compliments like “excellent student” “hard working” “polite” and “well behaved” were thrown around unanimously. This made me very proud, but I kept wondering if maybe they were sending a different, sassier student home from school. One that could spend hours laying upside down on the sofa watching TV while eating cereal from the box.
