It is important to read carefully

Second post for today but I had to share a post I just posted on my wordpress blog - Skimming Google Reader Causes Confusion.

Progression, not Grade Level

I'm still enjoying the Schoolhouse Expo.  Great sessions today so far with Kim Kautzer and Molly Green.  Kim  talked to us about the importance of helping our children learn to write well and gave us lots of great tips and information.  Molly talked about the importance of teaching our children to be fiscally fit.  I got some great tips from both presenters.

My favorite thought so far today has been one from Kim Kautzer when she said that we ought not to concern ourselves with what grade level our child is working at but we ought to be concerned with whether they are showing progression in their learning.  Great advice!

That's what's on my mind at the moment.
