This has been a rough week for Jasmine. The end of the year pressure is on at school. She's making very little progress in math this year, especially right now, and the teacher is constantly on her about being off task. She is on as high of dose of daytrana and focalin as we are comfortable with so we are not going to increase meds at all. The teacher constantly being on her, of course, makes Jasmine feel the teacher doesn't really like her. We have had that problem in the past, but this is this teacher's third year with Jasmine and it's not a like/dislike thing. It's just frustration. FCAT testing is behind, but the end of course math exam is ahead. This is the first year Jasmine has had end of course exams. She had one in civics this morning and it was a pass/fail test. So a child could get all A's in civics, fail the EOC and fail the class. Testing is just crazy to me!! This is one of the reasons I have a masters in elementary education but don't teach.
Jessica and I are counting down to NYC, and we are also nearing the dance recital. We decided Jasmine's hip hop costume looks like the Dauntless costumes in the Divergent movie. What do you think? The leather jacket isn't part of the dance costume.
