We had parent teacher conferences for Matthew and Lucas on Monday. Mrs. Kinney said that she had never had a set of twins before, so she wasn't sure what to expect achievement wise, but she was shocked. Our district has a ridiculously low standard (as far as I'm concerned) that second graders should be able to read 5-10 sight words in September. By May, they should be at 180.
Matthew: 171, Lucas: 173 ......only off by two, and in my mommy mind, based on the standard, that screams OVERACHIEVERS!
On their HearingandRecordingSoundsInWords (or HRSIW), the expectation is 48...that means they can write down, correctly, words that are dictated to them.
Matthew: 58, Lucas: 58....exactly the same. I wonder if it was the same words they had correct/wrong?
BAS reading level expectation is that they are at a Level I....
Matthew: J, Lucas, J
Math Facts: They should know 25/100 in September....
Matthew: 43 addition/32 subtraction, Lucas 62 addition/41 subtraction
It was funny to see Mrs. Kinney so surprised at their similarities....and I was a proud mommy when I left the conference :)
