Lleyton Austin

Lleyton Austin is a Seahorse and has made tremendous steps towards reading at the age of 5. I cannot believe how hard he tries to incorporate phonics into everything he does. We do extra work at home to try and reinforce what he has been doing in class. He's constantly sounding out words, using phonics when seeing a word he doesn't recognize and is always spelling things out in daily conversation.

Lleyton has also developed a confidence he did not have prior to beginning at BISC. I find him taking on more challenging tasks without needing me to assist him. I feel very lucky to have such amazing teachers who work with him on these skills each and every day. Here is my little guy working on his Legos and "reading" the directions while following each step on his own. Legos can be tricky for a child to follow as they have to use critical thinking skills in order to build things correctly. Sequence is very important as one missed step can cause the entire masterpiece to fail, which is very frustrating for children. He's doing this by himself now, at a higher skill level than 5 years of age, with confidence, patience and mastering each set he builds.

Gabe Kleinman

Gabe started Tae Kwon Do about a year ago.  After the first month or so, he was very discouraged because he had not received a belt promotion.  We encouraged him to stick it out and he did!  Now, he has just been promoted for the 4th time and will receive his purple belt on May 27! We are very proud of him and love how proud he is of himself as well.
