We had our conference with Aidan's teacher this past Monday afternoon. It was great!
Aidan's teacher is a wonderful woman who is a really great fit for him. She is young, fun & doesn't put up with any monkey business which is exactly what he needs. He is the type of kid - you give him an inch & he'll take - a thousand miles.
She showed us his report card - which he did really well - three A's, two B's & his math progress report (in today's times, they do not get a grade in math - just a bunch of different skill sets in which they are placed in either beginning, developing or secure). He is right where he is supposed to be in all of those.
His teacher then told us that Aidan is very confident - especially in math. I could of told her that. The kid has been able to be the banker in Monopoly for three or four years now. He can also make change in his head when we go to the grocery store and he buys two packs of gum.
She also said he is very competitive. I don't even think she's seen him play football - or wrestle!
He is doing really well in third grade - can't believe the first quarter is over already!
