kristinannie Posted December 30, 2011 Share Posted December 30, 2011 I am starting 1st grade tomorrow. We are doing SM1a and NOEO Bio. He is definitely in at least the 1st grade as far as reading level, but we are just going to continue that normally along with the handwriting he is used to (we are almost through the K book). I am stepping things up a little bit. We are going to do a little more formal schooling and also start learning German. I am not sure what to tell DS5. I am thinking that I won't say anything and that we will "start" first grade this summer like we started K last summer. We will just continue from where we are at. The wording isn't that important to me. I am also not wanting him to tell all his friends that he is in first grade since that would be awkward. At what point do kids start to realize that they are accelerated? My son has no point of reference really because he is homeschooling and is my oldest. When he has playdates, it isn't like they discuss school. I just thought I would post on here and get some advice. I am sure he is going to get more and more ahead, especially in math. This is a kid who literally does multiplication in his head even though I have never taught this to him. What is the best way to handle this? Thanks so much!
