how is school going for those with kids there?
It came up in our family just last week.
My 2nd grader just took a math benchmark test. It is 2 months into the school year. He got a 100 :)
Edited to say, this test was taken BEFORE the report card so they could gauge the 1-4 grade they will be giving the children.
ITA with you.
For what it's worth, my older son was young for grade and bright, and I thought about delaying him, but didn't, figuring he'd "catch up."
I wonder if holding kids back makes a difference with all the "gifted kids" stories I have heard through the years.
My ds, who is an Oct. baby and the deadline is Dec. 1st is beyond his age level (in the letters they determine in school) in reading and does very well in math. Right now he is too young for any "gifted" class and who knows what the future will hold but I guess he could be the top of his class if he was held back.
Five is an arbitrary age.
Did you put him in preschool to interact and be social with children at 2,3,4 years old?
The kids your ds hang out with are a year younger than himself, correct?
