DD is really enjoying her 3-4-5 grade class this year. The skip really helped with the range of materials and projects she has access to and her teacher is very supportive of her emotional needs (she's a young 7). At her conference a few weeks ago, we were planning out the next six weeks of learning goals for dd. She participated and decided that for math she wanted to explore algebra: "what are those x & y's all about??" I was glad to hear that, as I had heard from her that the math programs were split along grade lines (unlike most other subjects) and she was finishing problems really fast. So we'll see how that goes. She just took her statewide 3rd grade tests and I'll be interested to see how those come out. Her school does not do much formal assessment so this will be the first real benchmark we've seen since public school K. I don't want to imply that I'm test focused, but I find that it helps with accommodation at school to have some tangible results in the file. DD might want to take some community college classes in high school, so some test results can be good for that.
She just went to her first slumber party! I never did that until about 10yo. but she really wanted to go. We're going to plan a sleepover for one of her bff soon since she had a great time. I'm also looking at a gymnastics/dance after school class. Maybe a musical instrument next year; there is a ukulele class that would be interesting!
Love to hear everyone's stories!
