How can it be Friday already? Where did this week go? I have so much going on at the moment, I’m not sure if I’m coming or going.
Feel like this some days. Replace baby in the picture with teen.
Tash got some of her marks back from her assessments and she did really badly in two of them and not so well in the others. She was really disappointed. It’s been a bit of an Eeyore cloud hanging about us.
I’ve been bringing work home this week so haven’t had much me time. Or actually I have had some but it’s at 11 at night when I’m feeling all wired from working so can’t sleep straight away, which means I’m tired. I think I need a weekend to sleep. (Not going to happen this weekend)
I requested that Tash see the remedial teacher (Mrs G) at school to test her comprehension to see if we can establish why when she knows her work it doesn’t translate in the exams. She called today to say she did really well in the standard reading, listening and comprehension tests. (Tash told me she got 47 out of 50). We spoke about my concern about a comment that Tash made – she said the teachers say if a question is worth 3 marks then they only mark the 1st 3 sentences. I was appalled!
Tash told me she battles to get her words out on paper. I told Mrs G that she’s and extrovert, she speaks to think so I’m guessing the same happens when she writes, so Mrs G has offered to take her for a few sessions and help her with this. She is also going to review some of her assessments to see if she can pick up anything that could help us help her. I feel a great sense of relief.
I’m working in Jozi next week so flying up Saturday to spend some time with one of my best friends, my god son and my aunt. Tash is really excited to stay with her school friend J for 3 school nights!
And another UP
I’m really grateful to my special friends that are helping me out while I’m away. I’m feeling really blessed.
Here’s some Friday Funnies to kick start your weekend
