I'm sorry it was such a rough year. I'm wishing you lots of luck at the IEP meeting!

Now I might cry. Happy and sad tears.
The gains you talked about here are so important and will serve him well in later grades. I'm sorry the rest had to be so hard. I hope that your meeting goes well on Friday and that a consensus can be met about where to go from here!
Does he like computer games that aren't in his interest categories? has some fun basic math facts games. No handwriting required! The geography games are also very fun. The advanced U.S. geography game is a hit with my students.
How did the eog tests go?

Thanks for your support, Omaha. Even though I try to steel myself about things like grades, etc., they still bother me. He didn't pass the math portion of the EOG, so there's a scary-sounding "promotion hearing" in two weeks. We can show up for the first 3 minutes of it and make an appeal. Third grade woes seem to be dragging on and on a bit.

But thanks for your support and words of encouragement--they mean a lot.
