Holy test results...

I thought my 4th grader would go back to public school and things would be more evened out academically with the other kids. The younger years, K-1, reading novels, not tying shoes, drawing or cutting well, etc. I thought they had evened out quite a bit, but then my 9 year old comes home with his reading results:

4th grader, 10th grade reading level.

Tenth! So he gets to work with books he chooses from the library, and they have to be between 4th and 10th grade level. Lots more choices for him which is wonderful!

I think we all deserve brag time, especially when our hard times can be so tough. :)

Wow. That is great! I think folks around here really appreciate the brags because we know the struggles that come with the successes. Sounds like your ds is a wicked good reader! You may need to be careful

Thanks guys!

I'm not *too* worried about content, because of how DS is. He doesn't like books that are inappropriate! He blots out any "bad" word in his own books. Even "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" are inappropriate to him. lol!

I'm not sure about him doing reports yet, but he does do online tests earning points. I think the reading is mostly extra somehow during class time. Lists get sent home every few weeks showing how many books they've read and the test results. So many books! He even takes out books he thinks his 3 year old (special needs) sister would like and brings them home for her. It's just so nice to have something like that that he loves so much *at school*.

This has me wondering about PDD and AS kids.
