Just generally, what is taught with respect to Reading and Math in First Grade? I was thinking yesterday how much ds's reading has progressed in such a short amount of time this year in kindergarten - mostly due to leveled readers that the teacher sends home to read indepedently, I think, but also due to what is taught in class -- and how he would likely continue to advance at a rapid pace during the summer (if he continues to read independently). But then it dawned on me - what would he be learning in first grade if he goes in reading at, say, a second or third grade (or whatever) level? Also is interested in adding large numbers and multiplication and is able to do a lot of math in his head -- Would he be learning anything new there? He professes that the work done in K is "easy," but this doesn't really seem to bother him b/c he likes the social interaction and play time so much, as well as classes such as computer and art. If there is less social time/play time in First Grade and he isn't learning anything new, I wonder if he will be unchallenged (which could lead to boredom or acting out) for large portions of the day. When I point out how he has learned how to read many words that he didn't read before this year, he says, "Yeah, but then I read them and know them, and then it's easy" i.e., learning has ended w/ regard to those words... I guess the best-case scenario is that there will be others at his level in the class and that accommodations will be made for them (no gifted program until later grades, if he turns out to be gifted).
