We had parent-teacher conference with Ah Lo’s teacher today.
His teacher’s comments: “Ah Lo continues to do well in 5th grade. He is clearly an advanced reader, as noted in assessments and in classroom discussions. However, I think sometimes he does not push himself as much as he could because some of the assignments are easy for him. He knows I want to try for his best effort. In informational writing, Ah Lo shows good organization, but must sometimes be prompted to add more detail or a better conclusion. He is easily able to improve his work. Mathematics continues to be a strength for Ah Lo, but he should always slow down and check his work. Ah Lo did a great job during our dance and poetry performance, even though getting up on the stage is not his ‘cup of tea.’ His artwork and organization continue to astound me.
Ah Lo has outstanding behavior in and out of the classroom. He is a thoughtful, kind and helpful person. I really want Ah Lo to reach is potential as a learner and I know with a little more effort he can do even better work. I know he will enjoy the upcoming challenges and tasks as we close out the fifth grade year. He is a special guy.”
He really is…
Ah Lo’s SRI Lexile index has gone up from 1162 to 1302. What a great improvement since the beginning of this year.
