Purple Sage Posted January 23, 2011 Share Posted January 23, 2011 My youngest is 10, and was in a GT school until the end of 4th grade last year, when they tested him and said he needed to be in 6th grade. We brought him home and he is doing a 6th grade curriculum, and most days are great, his output amazes us...but maturity wise, the expectations of the work are so high for a 6th grader and he is not quite there! We use the K12 curriculum and he does great on tests etc, but the volume of writing is completely overwhelming some days....do you let them do some stuff orally to keep them from melting down or what is the recommendation for how to keep him loving school like he does now, without completely burning him out!? :confused: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
