TheAutumnOak Posted February 8, 2011 Share Posted February 8, 2011 Can this be done and is it advised?...I started 5th grade work with my 10 year old in January, and he is doing okay in History, likes Science, but is still struggling with reading...He can read, but I don't think it is on a fifth grade level... I am torn between continuing on with his 5th grade subjects, or doing only remedial math and language arts until the Fall...That would put him in the fifth grade then instead of now...His birthday is in September...I wanted to stick with a January start, but am now not sure if we should continue with the 5th grade level work that I don't think he is ready for...I am also not sure if I am not having high enough expectations for him... I would love any advice...Just when I though everything was figured out, I am torn again...He never really had a fourth grade year...He started first grade at 7... When I re-read over the logic stage info in WTM, I don't think he can do work on that level yet... The question - Should I continue with what he is doing and just start teaching him like a logic stage student next year in the 6th grade, or stop and start 5th grade in the Fall? I really wish things had been different in the past and he was working on his grade level... Thanks so much to anyone who responds in advance...
