Thing 2 brought her report card home first. The ratings they give are not A through F, they're... I think it's 3, 2, and 1 for Outstanding, On Grade Level, and You Better Do Better!
Both of my kids do very well in school, mostly 2s on their report cards with an occasional 3 for reading.
For this last report card, her first for first grade, Thing 1 did just that, all 2s with one 3. I was REALLY proud. By comparison, Thing 1 in first grade got all 2s except the 2nd and 3rd trimester, the 3 in reading. So Thing 2 is doing very well.
This first report card of 2nd grade for Thing 1 was ALL 3s except one 2 in Math.
I was floored! Bless her little heart!
I am so proud of both of them!
