Triennial Done and Separation of Church and State
It has been a very busy month so far! I have spent a large amount of my time when not at work, preparing for James's triennial IEP. With the transition into 6th grade next year there was much to do. James is doing well and made the honor roll again this grading period. He missed the Principal's honor roll by a smidge due to his writing. A simple Google search brought me to this gem... I Hate to Write Huh... someone I know resembles this. Book will be added to our shelf soon. Hopefully the resource teacher will add it to her arsenal as well. Another program James has been using with his speech teacher is the Superflex program, check it out... it really is wonderful!! Superflex Anyway, triennial done, James doing well, aide systematically being faded, new school district actually excited about getting James for sixth grade; all in all, it has been a great year, and looking forward to the future, finally.
James was doing homework on Monday, and got concerned when I asked him to finish. He still had definitions to complete on his spelling words. I asked him what the trouble was, and he said he didn't know how to do it. Definitions has been something he has done since the beginning of the school year, so I didn't see what the trouble was. James looked at me and said "But Mom, now I'm being asked to find the religion of the words!" It took very little time to understand what he meant, but his comment made me giggle. I asked him if he meant origin, and he said "Yes, I don't know how to find it." I showed him how to locate the origin of the words and homework was finally done. Just another giggly homework session at the Laughter House.
