So the boys are working on patterns in Kindergarten. In case you can't see it, the teacher's note on the side says, "What happened?"
"We're really sorry, Mrs. A., but we dropped him on his head at an early age, and he can't do patterns...unless it's on the ipad. Then we're good."
"We're not really sure what happened either, but if you figure it out, be sure to let us know."
"Holy hell! Ditto. What is THAT?!"
In lieu of using any of the above responses, when Jadon asked what I thought about his school work, I gave the very noncommittal response of, "Wow, Buddy!" Because that really does say a lot, you know, without having to tell him that we've placed an emergency call to Hooked on Phonics and the Patterning Police.
So, after much deliberation, we just really don't know what happened. Also, we might be looking into Kindergarten remediation.
