    She can read but has trouble sometimes with fluency and punctuation so I know what I can do to help her....

    Level 20 expectation for end of grade two at my ds's school (qld) too.
    So she rounds right on track if not ahead.

    My DD1 is in Year 2 in QLD. Our Principal had a big section in the newsletter about the new curriculum and the expectations on report cards, and she said that she thinks C = celebration. C means they are exactly where they should be at this stage.

    DD1 will be expected to count to 1000 and back from 1000, read at level 20 and add and subtract...they are also learning their multiplication table.

    Maybe tell your DD that things are a bit different now and C = Celebration, cheer her up about her report card, bless her. Sounds like she is right on target.

    As a year one teacher in qld my advice is...you could go on the national curriculum website and see the grade two learning outcomes an indicators

    Unfortunately the new curriculum is a lot more advanced than qld is used to and most children will b getting c's. We gave out VErY few a's and b's!!!

    I however made sure I organised interviews with all the parents of students who got Ds to sit and give parents the heads up and discuss some things we could both do to enhance their understanding. Maybe see the teacher again and ask what things you can do at home to reaffirm concepts taught in class... Perhaps you could ask for a communication book to be sent home daily/ weekly where she keeps u in the loop about your DD progress and behaviour. Then you dont miss anything and its all recorded.
    Hope all goes well. Must b hard to see your little one having a hard time!!! X

    Oh and my year ones are expected to read a level 14-16 for a c equivalent at end of year one! Think year two is a 25 or so!

    Also not (really) trying to derail the thread - but how hilarious! Can you imagine learning and testing the kids on counting to 1000! Makes me think of counting sheep.... Could take an entire school day.

    Yeah I just taught year 3 and majority of them were reading level 20-30 so if your DD is 19/20 half way through year 2 she is right on par if not even ahead !

    they also wrote in our newsletter how a C was good.

    In SA the expectation is level 16 by end of grade 1 & 26 by grade 2...I'm pretty sure Victoria is very similar to SA but you can ask the teacher.
