She had the kids write personal goals. Then she checks back with them to see if they completed the goals.
One of his goals was to ask Isaak to go outside to play. Well he did that once. Today I reminded Mica that, that was a personal goal. He said, "I already did that." I said, "Mica goals aren't a 1 time thing."
Mica has great grades. His lowest was a B in math. He's always struggled more in math then any other subject.
It doesn't really look like him, but this is Mica's self portrait.
Mica is supposed to tell us, or his teacher if these exercises he gets are too hard, or confusing. Then he'll get moved back to his regular course material. We just want him to continue to learn.
No one in his class got a great grade for problem solving. I guess Mica came up to her and said, "My pencil is broken." She shrugged her shoulders and said, "What do you want me to do about it?" There's a bag the teacher has full of sharpened pencils + they all have a twist sharpener at their desk. I think it's a problem many kids have over all in this day and age.
She was impressed that he makes us coffee every morning, and has other tasks to do at home.
Mica does do his own homework without Travis checking it now. This is the first year for that.
We had to choose to sign if Mica can participate in the sex talk at school. That's been big in the news. Is it a parent's job, or the school's job to teach about sex? In 4th grade they only get talked to about deodorant, periods, bras, and their bodies changing. We'll talk to Mica, and the school can talk to him to. It's later when he gets the real sex talk.
He to seems to be doing well in school. I hope it stays that way.
