Jarom the Great!



I had a parent teacher conference with Jarom's teacher yesterday and it was rather interesting. Jarom is doing EXTREMELY well in school but he likes to act like he's not. He is advanced in some of his skills already and perfectly normal in all the rest. If you ask little Armjo if he can read he will tell you NO without a second thought, all he can do is sound out the words. His teacher says otherwise (and I already knew). He will sit down and read all the books his teacher sends home to read and doesn't think he's reading. What a card. Starting in December they will rotate classes for reading to get students into better groups according to where they are at...Jarom will get to stay with his teacher who is taking the "advanced" kids. Way to go Armjo!!! Mr. Schwertfeger was Tanks kinder teacher and he actually asked Ms. Fairman how she got so lucky to get Jarom Hoopes in her class. He really loved having Tank and told her he was jealous that he didn't get to have Jarom. I was quite happy to hear that. We loved Mr. Schwertfeger and we love Ms. Fairman. I love you Jarom...keep up the good work even if you can't read!

It's weird, but often times, gifted children (for who knows what reason) believe that they are not as advanced as they really are. Just keep reminding him of how talented he really is!

so cute. Hadley always says he isn't smart...I think it's kinda like girls in jr. high always saying they are having a bad hair day...just so their friends will say it's cute:) I think they just want the attention and praise.
