I make mostly A's in all of my subjects except Social Studies where
I make mostly B's. I just don't get some of the history part of Social Studies.
I really do not know why but I am always working to get A's in the
I have a problem remembering dates and events in Social Studies.
Trying to connect all the events with the dates is hard sometimes.
After I read something I do not do very good on the working part
of the reading. I think I read fine but I have to work on understanding
and remembering what I read so to do the work part correctly.
Math is really hard for me. Really, really hard. I know I have to get
better at it.
I do not test very good in Science and Social Studies. I get C's in those
subjects but I do test better in all of the other subjects. I need work at
getting better grades on my test in those two subjects.
Science and Social Studies is what I am weak in. I have a lot of problems.
In science I sometimes do not understand it. Social Studies sometimes
does not interest me. But I know I have got to work on both and get
better. Both subjects are important and I will work hard to improve
on both this year.
I need to slow down when I read and not get in a rush. In Social Studies
when I go to fast I can not remember what I am reading so I can
answer the questions.
Math is really hard for me. I sometimes do not understand it. I really have
trouble putting the decimal point where it needs to be.
I need to work on three subjects: math, reading and writing. My math is okay
but I need to be more careful when doing the problem. I sometimes get one
number to much and one number not enough. I read to fast and I need to
slow down so I can remember what I have read. And I write to fast and
I need to slow down so I can read what I write.
