Comments: Sweet Pea is doing a wonderful job in school! She should be very proud of herself! Keep up the great work!

Sweet Pea also got a report card for her Speech That had a grade of AP which stands for Making Adequate progress. and the comment was this.... Sweet Pea is really beginning to "catch on" to producing her error sounds correctly at the word level. She is aware of what sounds she is working on and works hard to use the sounds correctly.

Well there ya have it folks Princess, Mr Man, and Sweet Pea's 2nd 9 week report cards.
