There are six areas the teachers comment on:
- Listens Carefully
- Stays on Task
- Follows Directions
- Treats Others With Respect
- Follows Class Rules
- Does His/Her Best Work
There are three "grades:"
- Needs Improvement
Little G received an "Outstanding" in each class. He makes me so proud. But then his teachers' comments made me tear up:
"G is very well mannered and plays well with other children. He listens well. Knows his letters, colors, etc. He is an excellent role model for our class." (I added the boldface.)
I read him the comments from his teachers and scooped the little stinker in my arms. The same boy who grabs toys from his sister, argues with me over which route is quickest to get us from Peel's Beauty Supply in Wichita to our home in Augusta, gets mad when I give him crew socks instead of his "big" socks, this boy is a sweetie-pie for others. At least he knows how to behave around others.
Which is most important because I want to keep up appearances.
