You know I’m way behind when I haven’t gotten around to bragging on my girl yet.
I got shadowkatt’s writing evaluation results back yesterday. The tester actually gave the test to two other staffers (one being the center manager), because she thought she’d missed something. Katie is the very first person, at any grade level, to get a perfect score on their writing test.
Yep, that’s what I said—a perfect score. No mechanical (spelling or grammar) errors. Good organization. Good argument and supporting points. Vocabulary that shocked the hell out of them, coming from a 12-year-old (not because it was obscene, either).
She even turned the topic they gave her around. She was supposed to talk someone into watching her favorite TV show. She stated that she isn’t into TV, and instead proceeded to convince the reader to pick up Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Mists of Avalon instead of watching the TV movie made from that book. And she did a damned good job of it, too.
Yes, I’m a proud mama 🙂
