Knowing Your Child

Conner is considering doing an “advanced” 6th grade classroom. 

Last night we went to a meeting about it.

It’s so funny.  They have to go on and ON about how you have to KNOW your child, not just throw them into this because you hope they love school.

But it’s true.  I’ve emailed Conner’s teachers several times to get their opinion as to if he loves school and loves to soak in information like a sponge.

So many parents think their kids are advanced.  Conner thinks he is advanced at everything, but the sad news is that he isn’t.   But, I do think this program will be good for him.  He is relatively a self starter and he does homework with very little reminding to stay on task.  At least my fingers are crossed.

Of course, who knows if we’ll even be here… but you’ve gotta leave options open, right?

    The teachers in that program are awesome. Do it for that, especially if you’re pretty sure he can handle it. I have to say I don’t think it was so much different, one of mine did regular 6th and one did plus. How funny that they make you sign up, we were just thrown in based on test scores, etc.
