I just received my daughter's test scores today and I am overwhelmed at what to do about them. She turned 9 in November and she is currently in grade 4. She is starting to act out in class and not bother doing her school work, which we know is not on par with her abilities, so we paid for complete psycho-educational testing.
The psychologist did not give me a number IQ but she said it is in the 98%. She is working 2-4 grade levels above in every subject. The psychologist said that the acting out in clas is because she is not being challenged at all and she recommends placement in a full-time gifted class. That isn't available at our school and the enrichment they've been giving her isn't enough. For example, she's in grade 4 so they give her grade 5 spelling but she is working at a grade level of 8.7 in spelling so the grade 5 spelling isn't really anymore challenging for her than the grade 4 spelling. Same with math and reading. I wish I could pull her out and homeschool but she loves the social aspect of school and I am in school full-time so I can't.
Any ideas of what we should be doing for her to help her be challenge? She is just so bored in class and wants to be actually learning.
