My girl is only in first grade. So we don’t focus on grades. My girl is also has a bit of a perfectionist. She does well until she knows that there is a test and then she freaks out and worries about missing an answer. So as a rule we don’t focus on grades but on learning. Today was an exception. We reached that moment in the book where there was a unit test. I didn’t tell her it was a test but the girl figured it out. I reassured her it was no big deal and she finished it and did great.
She missed 2 questions and then was able to go back and correct them. So she got an 96 before she corrected the questions. I am very proud of her. It also helps me to see that she is learning and getting the concepts.
So do you do grades in school? Do you focus on them? I am curious on what every one else handles this situation.
