Ok, I just have to share a proud moment. We have been working on getting Morgan ready for her very first SAT test in a couple of weeks. One of the things we have been preparing for is reading comprehension. The material I am using has you time them for 3 minutes. They read the story and answer the questions. The number of questions they get correct correlates to their reading level. We have done about 10-15 of these and she is consistently reading at an average of 6th grade (she is in 3rd)! I am so proud!
Don't worry, I'm not one of those parents who thinks my kid is smarter than every other kid in the world. This is just one of those moments that reassures me in my abilities to teach my children.
