We are almost half way through February and I am wondering how our 8 and 9 year olds are feeling about school.

Do they like their teachers? Do you like their teachers?

Do they have lots of friends?

How is the homework? Too much? Not enough? Sporadic? Too easy, too hard, or just right?

Any big projects?

Anything you are impressed with? What about disappointed about? Anything you would love to be changed?

School is going okay for Ian, he isn't a terribly strong academic student. He is very bright but never goes above and beyond just what's required.

His teacher this year is a pretty good match for him. She is actually the teacher that none of the parents want their kids to have, but Ian is reading for pleasure for the first time, and actually talking about work they are doing rather than just what he played at lunch and recess. This teacher also helped us to get him the speech and OT I've wanted him to have for 3 years, and finds every opportunity for him to get any extra help.

Homework - I like the homework the 4th grade teacher I work with better!
