He has been doing great at school, getting 95% or 100% on his weekly written phonogram pickles. Yay! The written phonogram pickles test them on 20 Spalding phonograms that they have learned. Well, today he got a "Pickle Wizard" award because he got a 100% on his written phonogram pickle AND a 100% on his practice spelling pickle! Double Yay! Starting today, he will have weekly spelling pickles in which the kids get tested on 15 spelling words for that week. Way to go Jared! Yes, spelling tests in Kindergarten - Wow!
So now, he has...
- A weekly written phonogram pickle on 20 phonograms (using the Spalding method)
- A weekly spelling pickle on 15 words (again, using Spalding and the Ayres word list, which is a list of the most frequently used words in the English language. They just start at the top of the list and work their way down.)
- Math pickles every 5 days, on math facts and assessment (using Saxon math)
- And a weekly writing pickle, in which the students write 3 sentences on the subject they learned about that week (using Rubrics)
Have we mentioned how impressed and blessed we are with Jared's school? They are wonderful! Praise God Jared can attend here and that the girlies can too, in the future! This kid of ours keeps amazing me with what he can learn and do! The teachers and staff are wonderful! Oh, and in case you wonder if it's all "work, work, work" they do get to have fun...lots of fun at his school!
