He's proficient!

And I've got the document from the state to prove it! We received Thing One's first official state mandated CSAP score in reading today. He scored in the proficient range which thrills me to no end! Oh sure, that little bit of competitive mommy that we all harbor hoped to see a higher score. I mean come on, he's always been a good reader.

But given his nature and his disinterest in standardized tests, I'm very pleased with the results. This is the kid that would get 1/2 way through something and say "I'm outta here" and leave the rest blank because he knows the rest of the test is just more of the same. Or, he'd announce he's too tired to finish and would just scribble in whatever bubble he thought looked the most in need of some pencil attention.

These results show me that he's starting to understand the importance of doing your best. And that alone is a HUGE change for him.

Way to go dude! We're so proud of you...even before the state told us you were average.

Congratulations to my favorite Thing One! We too are proud of you for your stick-to-it-ness with those silly ole standardized tests. First a Math Blaster and now a Reader! Way to go buddy.

Love, Aunt Laura
