Today was Parent-Teacher Interviews/Orientation at JC’s elementary school.
We loved it! It was not the usual whip in, whip out for a ten minute conference with the teacher.
Today was a leisurely hour where the teacher made a presentation to a group of parents. Then JC got to guide us through different areas of the class: his desk, reading bin, artwork, dictee word stations etc. Lastly, each parent talked with the teacher about their child’s goals.
1. Ignore his teacher. He has his antennae tuned to her.
2. Work more slowly and he could be exceeding expectations. Oh, JC lives being first.
Here are a few samples of his work: yes, he is taking French Immersion.
This self-evaluation JC did with his teacher was brilliantly insightful. A self-evaluation where the student coloured in yellow highlighter and the teacher was in blue. Anytime the student and teacher were in agreement the highlighter turned green. Brilliant!
My personal favourite. I cried!
