Katie 7 yr well check

 height: 3' 10'' 18%
weight 44 18%
BMI 14.6  (27%)
vision: 20,20
BP 100/58
pulse 92

She is doing good on calcium, does need more fruits and veggies, and protein isn't a concern either. She's meeting her milestones.

She also got her interim report, and she has a lot of 2s, which is needs support, but she is getting that with resource room/IEP. She is above with reading in MCLASS (their evaluation) except the reading comprehension (the writing portion) where she is at lowest level, but that is to be expected with her IEP- developmental delay in non-verbal. I am very proud of her.
Also, her behavior has been great at school so far.

Jill Preschool updates

They have a new program where they send home notes and usually pictures, so I will normally start posting all of this in her school tab, at the top of the page right under the banner. 

Jillian enjoyed building a farm with the bristle blocks and playing with all of her friends this morning. Have a wonderful weekend!
Weekly Theme: Express Yourself: Today the children enjoyed a puppet show about friendship.
Lunch - some of the Tropical Fruit, all of the Milk, all of the Cheese Tortellini, none of the Green Beans
Reading with a friend Caleb 

8/19 "We read Mouse Paint during Circle Time today. Jillian enjoyed mixing yellow, red and blue paint together and guessing what color it would make. Today we learned some Yoga moves...Tree Pose, Butterfly and Rolling Rock."

8/17  Jillian enjoyed reading books with her friends today. During Writing we practiced our letters while making a Letter Collage.

Latest and Greatest Katieism

"I hate science!" - Katie 

Mom:  I thought you wanted to be a scientist? 

"In science, we have to worry about being right all the time. I don't like it!"

Yes, that is a part of science.

Well, we don't do experiments, we just write stuff down all the time.
