Parent Teacher Conference

It's the boys turn now for Parent Teacher Conference. It began with Jacob who is a good student and his teacher really likes him. She always wants her students to be at the conference so they are more accountable for their grades. She says that Jacob is a quiet leader which is good. He is well liked and she can't wait to watch him play Basketball.

Daniel's teacher was running behind schedule so we had to come back to him. However, Daniel stayed to negotiate a grade with him in Science. :) I'll tell about that later.

Benjamin is doing well in school. When he finishes his assignments, he reads is AR book which the teacher likes. She says he is sloppy in his writing though. That was actually a general consensus among all the teachers for all the boys. So Lynn has suggested Handwriting Homework after school every day. We will see how that goes.

Samuel is doing well. He teacher just thinks he is so cute!! He has her fooled!! :) He has only missed 1 spelling word all year long so far. He even remembers what word it is and how he had spelled it wrong. He spelled Brown "Bown" He forgot the R. It was traumatizing because he didn't get a piece of candy for getting all his words right that day. Poor kid!!

Now to Daniel. I really like Daniel's teacher. He is good with the kids. I think he realized that by mentioning Britni a lot last year was detrimental to Daniel. So this year he has only mentioned her twice so far. Daniel has the potential to get way better grades than he has. If he really tried, he could have straight A's. He has all 3 A's and 5 B's. Some of those B's are on the low end!! He had to negotiate a C+ so he could play Basketball. That is our family rule. No sports if you have a C. He was able to negotiate it by doing some extra work for Mr. Fields. But Daniel was given quite a talking to about how when things get hard, he quits. Which I have known all his life. I'm not sure how to help him with that problem either.

Well, that was the conferences in a nutshell. Best be going. Have a great day!! :)
