report cards  

posted by Michael Piwonka 10:40 PM
The kids received their report cards today. Allie had another good report, but Mason received some less than stellar marks in literacy and social skills.

Penny and I were a little surprised, and immediately starting working on the issue. She has contacted the teacher to get advice on the best way to approach helping Mason catch up. I went to the bookstore and bought him a couple workbooks to help with reading and spelling.

We have already been working on his social skills, such as making eye contact when speaking to someone else, and using good manners.

Mason is an eager learner, and I think will do just fine with some additional direction.

Penny and I have long been concerned that Mason may have a hearing problem, which may be affecting one or both of these issues. He is scheduled to get his hearing checked soon.

random. arbitrary. completely unnecessary. yet refreshingly therapeutic.
