My granddaughter turned 7 in December of 1st grade and is now a 10 year old in 4th grade. This has suited her perfectly. She fits in well with her class and the curriculum is matching her interests and abilities.
My grandson will turn 7 next July and then enter 1st grade. I think he is going to be ready and perhaps a little more than ready. However, he has some trouble with holding writing implements, so if he was in 1st grade this year he would be struggling a lot. I think he'll be happier if he feels ahead of things rather than behind. He is also just getting interested in learning how to read, asking what various words are and stuff like that. Oh yeah, he lost his two bottom front teeth a few weeks ago.
