Areas of Strength: Rachel is adjusting well to kindergarten. She is enthusiastic about learning new things and is always willing to help others.
Areas for Growth: Continue to support her learning at home by practicing beginning sounds, writing and counting up to 20, and reviewing sight words that have been introduced in class. Encourage her to make better choices about where she sits on the carpet which is where she has difficulty staying focused.
I am finding that Rachel in kindergarten is a learning experience for me too. I kind of wish I would have spent a few semesters in college studying early elementary education myself.
On a related side note, Rachel is now reading Dick and Jane level 1 books. She needs some help, and has yet to finish one book in one sitting, but she does a lot of the reading of those books on her own. I’m very proud of her!
