The report card

27 Mar

I have to laugh that the school sends a report card for Maura.  She’s getting straight A’s.

Granted, the “A” is for “Adaptive”.  But still, get me that bumper sticker, I’ve got a straight A student!

I haven’t been allowed to read the full packet they sent because Maura keep stealing it.  (And yes, they sent a multiple page progress report – the lengths this school goes to will never cease to impress me.) What I have learned is that Maura is still not great with numbers.  She can count, she can identify, she can get to 20 sometimes.  But she’s really only consistent to ten.

However, she has sight words.  A list of words she can point to, read by herself.  All the days of the week, and words like “socks”, “Mom”, “cat”, and “rectangle”.

Rectangle.

And there sums up life with Maura.

    Gosh she is a beautiful girl. Love that smile :) Good for her! I’m glad she’s learning and growing and that the school is onboard to help her along.

    The rectangle doesn’t really surprise me. There is more in her brain than gets out. She is not stupid, she is just delayed. She may not get over being delayed, but it doesn’t mean she doesn’t understand stuff. She knows not to get into the hot chocolate mix when you are in the kitchen. She only does it when you aren’t looking. That is smart. She figures out how to do the password to get in your computer. She knows what she is doing. She knows what she likes and what she doesn’t. Just because she can’t get it out, doesn’t mean it isn’t in there.
