That is insane for 2nd grade!
This is where faith comes into the picture. I have to have continual faith that the kids and I will be able to push through and get to grade level. I know there will be times I just want to scream, but I have to breathe and stay focused. I will push the kids and some will push back out of frustration, so I need to ask for help in finding the right words to encourage them to keep trying.
So today on this Gratituesday I am grateful for the wisdom of experience and the faith that I will be able to give these kids the gift of reading by the end of our school year. It might not be and easy task, but it must be done. I owe it to these munchkins to try my best, just like I ask them to do for me! I am no saint, but I am willing to give it my best shot.
I will be sure to keep you all posted as we progress through the school year!

Until next time,
