Today Ephraim was evaluated by certified Kindergarten & 1st Grade teacher Mrs. Baranowski.  The evaluation took about 20 minutes.  She came out and said that Ephraim did just fine in her opinion.  She said that the State requires 1st Graders to read at a level of 60 words per minute.  She said that Ephraim reads at the level of 105 words per minute and that she can tell that he loves to read.  She also evaluated him on some basic math skills for his age level and she said he answered all the questions correctly.

It’s a big relief to know that Ephraim hasn’t fallen behind compared to other students his age.  I was afraid because this has been a tough year for our family with having twins and all.  I guess I will continue on this homeschool journey.
