Braden's First Conference

Braden's very first conference was this past Wednesday. I was so very is a completely different experience being on the other side of the table! Brad and I met at Braden's school and were greeted by his teacher's Mrs. Melinda and Mrs. Heather. They told us that Braden was a sweet boy, full of lots of spunk and very smart. They gave us a report, marked with G (Good), S (Satisfactory), or I (Needs Improvement)...on a side note I think it is a little ridiculous to give G, S, and I's to a 3 year old). He did get all Gs, except an I in cutting (which in my professional opinion he does a great job) and holding a writing utensil (which in my professional opinion he DOES need to improve on- he still fists his pencil). He received an S in sharing (not surprised!) and an S in listening (apparently he likes to talk...A LOT- not surprised). They told us that he was the only one in his class who could tell them his birthday...good thing he is a obsessed with it!

I am really proud of how well he is doing and I cannot believe how big he is getting...almost 4! Time sure does fly.

Here is an update on things that Braden knows/ can do...

  • recognize his name

  • spell his name aloud

  • recognize letters from his name in isolation

  • he can also recognize letters z, m, t, o, and s.

  • count to 29

  • recognize number 1-4, 6 and 9

  • sort objects by more than one attribute (color, size or type)

I am so very proud of my little boy!

From your OT friend. Just break those crayons if you can stand it (HA-HA). It will help promote a tripod grasp.
