Initially I know that Little Zoie’s grades are not as great as her grades back in Kinder 1 and 2, but I am still surprised that her grades didn’t reach the highest grading in their system. That would be an ‘A‘ as Advanced (90% and up). See her grades below.
Actually, her grades are really not that bad. ‘P’ means Proficient and has a grading score of (85%-89%) and honestly, I have been expecting too much since she delivered way above my expectation back in her preschool years. Also, I know that I have a big fault in this too. I just discovered that the more harder the lessons get, the more I am getting impatient in teaching. Bad mom, I know. I am not proud of it and I get mad at myself whenever the ‘impatient’ nature strikes in.
Now, I realized that I have to device my own method of teaching that should be incorporated with fun as she learns. No more impatient mom, she’ll get more confused that she already is. I just pray that she’ll be back on her feet the next grading period. I have to accept that it will take a lot of teaching and learning to achieve her usual ‘A’s’ in her report card.
I have to remind myself to stop being impatient and teach and help her get high grades from now on.
