Amelia is still having a tough time in school. And she's having a tough time telling us the truth about it. BUT I did get some encouragement by sitting in on her class time. (Last week the kids had Monday off and half days on Thurs and Fri.) I got to see her ELL class time, which was great. There are only 2 other kids with her during that time and she has lots of independence while being closely supervised (if that makes sense). And then during class time I got to see how the teacher teaches numbers and spelling. And I was impressed.
I've often wondered how teachers dealt with kinesthetic learners, those that can't sit still like my gal. She had a CD that taught numbers while moving your body, then another song that taught spelling with hand motions. I was thrilled!
The teacher said she did much better focusing while I was there...and she wasn't really all that focused. But I can tell her teacher really likes her, and that makes a lot of difference!
I also asked about her friend E, who I'd never met before but she talks about nonstop! The teacher said she's a good friend for Amelia to have...and after meeting her I'd agree. I'm so thankful she's seeking out good kids and not the rebels! Phew!
