My 6 year old kindergartener is currently in 2nd grade reading and is getting "bored" according to his teacher. There isn't enough time left in the school year to move him up to 3rd grade reading and I'd really like him to have a balanced education, since kindergarten really focuses on literacy first, his teacher is suggesting he may be able to skip first grade. But I'm a little torn on that for the simple fact that 1st grade is full time and kindergarten is half day. I'd like to give him a chance to get used to it before giving him harder work to do. I bought him workbooks for home and we talk about social studies, math, biology and other subjects they don't touch on in kindergarten but I can't believe how fast he picks up on everything. During testing, he was off the charts for everything. I have to decide soon whether or not to try to test him out of 1st grade. Any advice?
