Hi, I was hoping for some opinions and info on skipping grades. My daughter is in Kindergarten now and turned 6 on October 27.
I don't feel like she is being challenged at all. She really has been enjoying it and doesn't complain about being bored but I can tell that the things she is doing are way too easy for her. I do homeschooling with her at home as well as public school and everything I find for her is 1st grade level b/c all the Kindergarten stuff is just too easy and she already knows it. She has been able to read since she was 4, can do 2 column addition and subtracting and even "carry the one". She can count through all the hundreds and understands counting by 2s, 5s and 10s.
So for those who have kids who skipped a grade how did you decided to do it? Did you have to approach the teacher or do the teachers suggest it to you? Is it not something that's normally done half way through the year? I'm really lost here so any information would be much appreciated :) Oh and we are in NH if that matters as far as standards and policy by state.
