Well, hello there! I can't believe this is my first post this year. Boooo! Honestly I thought of giving up this blog because I can't manage it well but I think this day led me to doing another post and keeping another memory of Meg's milestone at school.
Yes she just finished her second grade! Along with what I wrote about her first week in Grade 2 and her being one of the class officers, this school year had been full of development and level-ups for my little lady.
But don't think it's all smooth and perfect; there are still times that my patience and parenting skills were tested. I can still remember our first PTC (Parent-Teacher Conference) where the teachers told me Meg had been quite a talker in class. She voiced out everything she thinks of even at the middle of their lessons and her teachers if not always, would usually call her attention. There's this one day that she went home and told me her teacher scolded her because she's talking to her seatmate. I did talk to her about it but I also want her to learn from it.
Eventually, the talking lessened. I told her to raise her hand to ask questions, listen to her teachers, follow instructions, and behave well in class. I know that there are times she can't help it (she's a kid, you know) but I'm glad she improved herself.
Anyhow, her performance and grades improved during their 2nd and 3rd trimesters. I admit I push her often but I don't require straight line of 9's on her report card but that she do her best in everything she does. Surprisingly, she did make it as one of the Outstanding students for the 3rd trimester! We got her report card last March 31 and I didn't even notice her name on the board. When I saw it, of course, I felt very proud. Her friend called her and told her, "OS ka!" and she was like "Ha? Really? OMG!" lol...
Her teacher said she's "smart but talkative". I know this school year had been
one great year of improvement for my little lady. She became more
matured, more focused, but still very outspoken. From being one of the
class officers, Math quiz bee participant, always volunteering with
their oral tests and singing practices, to saying what she wants to say
even at the middle of their lessons; it's been crazy catching up with
all her changes. But hey, I'm one proud Mom of this outstanding student!
