So my child loves to learn, but his test scores are very average NOT above average in any catogories. He is a very nice little boy and is extremely determined and eager to learn. His teacher adores him, which I love, but she went ahead and put him in enrichment classes, which are for the "gifted" students . She did tell me that there wasn't a better candidate so she seleted him, because he loves to learn!
My question is: Do you think this is a good idea? I'm afraid he won't feel "smart enough" when he goes to these classes. He has friends who are in these enrichment classes and they are very very bright! I don't think my child is dumb I just know hes an average student and I am afraid he could get discouraged in this class. I don't want to ask the teacher, because I don't want her to think like I am trying to deprive him of something or that I don't believe in him. What do you think? cont.
