First off, I was at the Allergist's office for the hour and a half that they promised, with a bonus trip to the lab for IgE and Bee Venom RAST blood testing. (Decoding here would be great, Janeen. I know the IgE thing, but need more info on RAST.) Skin testing came up with nothing, but the doctor was concerned about the reaction I had with the bee sting, made sure I had an Epi, gave me more information on that and a disk to view about it. He was a rather lovely gentleman. That office was very busy. Allergies are a big business!
They had TV. Hooray! It was on allergy shots. Boo.
I went straight from my appointment to the school (with a mid-stop at Wendy's. Thank goodness, as Kay and I didn't get to eat anything after that.) We had the book fair today. I sold books from 2:30-6:30 PM and I'm beat.
I did have a conference with K-'s teacher. She has three A's and two B's. She's on Honor Roll! Her reading is where she needs to be (as the teacher informed me that due to the MAZE scale that they have, they can confirm whether the kids are being worked with at home. They don't doubt that we work with K-.) An interesting thing that came about from the conference was that Mrs. B- told K- to stop using Touch Math. I talked to Mrs. B- about it last week and told her that now that they are using Touch Math, K- seems to have forgotten her math facts. She said that she raises her hand all the time now and has shot so far ahead, just by her telling her to stop using it. Mrs. B- told me that if I ever see anything that comes up like that, to let her know. A major improvement happened with her work by simply talking to the teacher in the hall.
Mr. B-, the principal, told me that K- was "Caught being good" and that she is to come down to the Principal's office tomorrow to get a prize. Her teacher turned her in for being so thoughtful and helpful. :)!!! They'll take her photo with the other children that were caught being good this month and their pictures will be posted on a bulletin board in the hall all year. HOORAY!
I'm beat, but today was a good day.
Have a great night. Smiles are above.
