As expected, her report card was filled with an A in every subject, and she made the honor roll again. It’s probably a good thing we don’t pay her for grades, because I imagine that we would have gone into the poorhouse a long time ago.
My favorite section, as always, is the comments section. This is from her teacher:
“Kaitlyn has been a delight. We enjoy her playful personality and spirit. Kaitlyn is making great progress academically and will continue to do so due to the effort she puts forth in class. She is always up for a challenge and we love her competitive side. She is on her way to a wonderful year in 4th grade. Great job!”
The only thing that I think is wrong in that entire series of comments is that her teacher loves Kaitlyn’s competitive side. Clearly, she has never seen Kaitlyn lose; it is not pretty at all.
We also finally got Kaitlyn’s Florida Standards Assessments (FSA) test results today. Anybody who knows me knows that I am not a huge fan of standardized tests for a lot of reasons, one of which is that they make teachers teach to the test. Also, Kaitlyn tends to struggle on them because she puts a ton of pressure on herself and tends to stress out about them.
Kaitlyn’s scored in the 96th percentile in math. She earned 24 of 26 points in “Operations, Algebraic Thinking, and Numbers in Base Ten,” 8 of 8 points in “Numbers and Operations-Fractions,” and 19 of 19 points in “Measurement, Data, and Geometry.”
In English Language Arts, Kaitlyn scored in the 97th percentile. She earned 10 of 10 points in “Key Ideas and Details,” 15 of 16 in “Craft and Structure,” 10 of 13 in “Integration of Knowledge and Ideas,” and 11 of 13 in “Language and Editing.”
Amber and I are very proud of her results, of course.
