We have been learning a huge lesson about fairness and how life is not fair. Gracie earned a medal for citizenship and Lucas earned two medals, one for academic excellence and one for leadership. Gracie is having a hard time because Lucas is so confident about what he knows and Gracie is terrified to be wrong. She hesitates and, as a result, people think she does not know as much as she actually does. Lucas is super speedy and can read with confidence. He is really fast at math and can add and subtract in his head like nobody's business. Gracie loves to draw, read, and write. She especially loves to pretend she is a teacher and "grade" all of the books in her room.
This should be our last year in a classroom together! Hello, grade school!
