How Did the Last Week Go?
It was the first week of back to school in many schools, but here we are getting into a routine. In the first three weeks the teacher focused on getting to know her students and on “benchmark testing” for second grade. Smarty did very well on the reading test and is excited to be officially recognized as an Accelerated Reader. Her teacher returns all her class work from the previous week home on Wednesdays, and I can see that she is applying herself in writing even though she is still doing as little of it as possible at home. In our limited free time we learned more about Rosh Hashanah and enjoyed a special Rosh Hashanah snack on Wednesday and dinner on Friday.
