Kindergarten is winding down, and it is such a bittersweet feeling as a parent. I LOVE that my kids are growing and changing, yet it is sad to say good-bye to certain seasons of life.
Claire worked very hard this year! She has grown academically by leaps and bounds. She has become a reader and writer, learned how to write all of her numbers, and count to 100+. She earned a "sustained mastery" rating on all the categories they grade in Kindergarten... and we are so proud of her!
Kindergartners at our school can earn four awards.
1. ABC award: Write, read, and recognize all ABC's
2. 123 award: Write and recognize to 30 and count to 100
3. Spelling Bee award: Know how to read and spell correctly their 35 sight words
4. Principal's Reading Award: Read a (certain level) book to the principal.
Claire earned all four awards, and was recognized in a ceremony with the principal...
They sang a few songs...
And took a few pictures with their family and teacher :-)
