Atira had a reading assessment done a couple of weeks ago and it turns out she is reading right around a 6th grade level! WOO HOO!! She loves to read (just like her brother) and we are so happy that she has been given this gift, a love of literature. The teacher who assessed her stopped at the fourth grade assessments saying there would be nothing left to assess her on in future years, but that most likely she is reading much higher than 5th...so that led to 6th! She is doing a wonderful job and growing up to be such a smart girl!
