We are all very proud of Andrew. Andrew has progressed in reading and has read an entire paragraph! He mastered single digit addition without a number line or manipulatives and is asking for harder problems!
Andrew’s teacher, Ms. Beirne, says he is learning to swim! He even practices his strokes during his “free swim” time (playtime). He is engaging with other students and using positive self-talk to keep himself calm during chaotic times. He is asking for breaks. Even when something is new and hard, he initially gets frustrated, but sticks with it!
Andrew used to think that Ms. April’s swimming classes were very hard. Now he thinks they’re not as hard as he thought they would be and has fun participating. He’s excited that he can count money and save it to buy things at the school store.
