8:15 a.m. till 12:30 p.m.

Meeting Attendees: Both parents, principal, kindergarten teacher, 1st grade teacher, guidance counselor, speech therapist, occupational therapist, special educator, special education supervisor for district, IU consultant and IU assistive technology

IU consultant did a presentation to explain the SAS Toolkit.

We sat and brainstormed all of Megan's Strengths and Interests.

We then went through what level Megan is at in her reading, writing, phonics and math subjects.

After that, the 1st grade teacher filled out the poster sized toolkit page where we discussed areas of 1st grade, Megan' Strength's and what we could do to make her successful next year. (i.e. what supports, modifications or technologies that would help Megan be successful)

It was an amazing meeting. We will continue the discussion on June 1st. Will update again soon.

It is that time of year again. Dance Recital is right around the corner.
Rehearsal is next Wednesday and we should be getting the costume today.
Megan is home with me today so we practiced doing her hair and I decided to have her sing the song they are doing.
This is not a common song that you hear every day but she does sing it more clearly today.
So here it is...what is the song?

Before we went out to the bus stop this morning Megan said, "Mommy, you stay here, I do it, I big girl now"....she marched to the driveway took a seat in the sun and waited as I watched from the porch...when I tried to come to her she signed "Stop" and when I stopped, she signed "I Love You"...Miss Independence I tell ya.

The bus pulled up and she ran to it and climbed those big stairs all by herself. Who needs a mom anyway? LOL
Megan did a great job again today with kid writing. She wrote the date, her name (first and last) and smart copied 'went' too. I also sounded out P-A-R-T-Y for her and she spelled it like this p-a-r-t-e....so proud when she does typical stuff!

Hi Mr. and Mrs. Bissol,

Good evening! I just wanted to take a moment to touch base regarding the wonderful things we are seeing lately with Megan. We sent home to you today, a copy of the Kid Writing that she did today. You can see how clear the letters look in the words mom and Olivia! I have been sounding out words for her and she is almost always correctly identifying the letter that makes the sounds! We are still working on forming the letters independently, but this is tremendous progress from the beginning of the year. Also, I have noticed that Megan is forming sentences that are much longer and detailed than earlier in the year. Today she went on and on about Mom, Dad, playing...it was awesome!! I didn't want to wait another day to let you know of all of the positive progress we see happening in Kindergarten!
Enjoy your evening! See you soon!

Thank you,

Megan's Kindergarten Teacher

sniff sniff, proud mommy moment!

How do I sign up? I want her to come to me and help me get my shit together!
I feel like I want to get healthy and fit but it would just be another thing to add to my list of a gazillion things to do.

I think Jill could totally help me get my life, mind and food issues in check. I would totally never want to piss that little lady off...lol
How do I sign up?

Today Kindergarten ran 1/4 mile fun run. Megan although a cute runner has no ability to keep up with the kids her age. I watched her class finish as Megan was not even half way done. As we continued to run to the finish line her music teacher came running up to cheer her on to finish along with all her girlfriends! It was so awesome to see them care about her and come to help her finish! It was a great moment! I was a very proud mom.
