2nd week down!

Finished the 2nd week, starting the 3rd!

 

So far I'm impressed with my boys' teachers.  Johan's runs a tight ship with organization-- which he so desperately needs!  He goes to middle school next year and no matter how we've tried he's just scattered-- but so far he's been doing great, even doing his homework by himself with no prompting.  We told him that we will only help him with his homework if he has a question, but if he gets something wrong, we will not tell him (in the past we made him correct it).  Jacob's teacher also runs a tight ship and is keeping him on task-- he's having some issues with talking, but is improving.  We do make him correct his homework (unless  he refuses, then it's between him and his teacher).

 

We'll know more when we meet with their teachers on Wednesday (back to school night, where we learn more about the classroom and expectations).

We are on our 3rd week too but this is our first full week of school; last 2 were 3 day weeks so this will be a good test.

Glad things are going good. So far so good on our end; hoping this years teacher has a better balance. I'm all for tight ships but she was a bit too rigid and that lead to IEP issues. We have parent night in 2 weeks; should be interesting and I'm on my own because there is a baseball banquet conflict...
