The kids got their second nine weeks report card this week. Both Hannah and Will made all A's!!! I am so proud of them. Way to go Hannah and Will!!!
Will has also made fantastic progress in his Speech Therapy class. At the end of the school year last year, I meet with Will's Speech Therapist to discuss his progress through Kindergarten and the plan for the next year (1st grade). Ms. Rockett said he would work on his L words, practicing the letter L at the beginning, in the middle and the end of a word and using it in a blend (like in the word blend). She thought it would take him all year to complete his objectives. We also discussed how long he would need therapy. Ms. Rockett thought that Will would be through either by the time he was in Third grade or by the end of that year.
This year, Will's Speech Therapist, Mrs. Huffman, worked with Will on his L words twice a week. At the beginning of January, she phoned me about Will's progress. He has done so well on his L words, she wanted to show this objective as being complete. She also wanted to start working on the letter R. Mrs. Huffman was very pleased with Will's speech progress. I am tickled pink!! I can tell a difference when I listen to Will talk. He has come a long way. There are still some things he will need help with, like his TH blends, but I am more than happy with his attempts so far!
