How do you determine what grade your child is in?
As you may know, DS6 is 2e. We do a school/homeschool blend this year because his bandwidth of needs is so wide. At school, he's grade Kindy. I'm trying to get my ducks in a row for next year when we homeschool full time. I'm looking at Common Core and STEM stuff right now trying to make sure we hit all the requirements next year. We struggle to keep DS "at age" motor skills wise. With low muscle tone, this includes his physical milestones. Emotionally, he is right about older kindy level. Decision/life skills, he's older. Reading he's 2nd grade. Math he's between 3 and 4th grade. All over the place.
One of the things we definitely want to leave open as an option is to enter academic competitions - math olympiads, odyssey of the mind, spelling bees, etc. DS is very competitive and sports just isn't his thing, so this may be an outlet for him here (and a social one too, says a hopeful Mom with fingers crossed).
So what grade do we check on the box? I think it impacts yearly testing and stuff too.
