My Daughter is in kindergarten (she is right at 6) and is reading at a 2nd grade level and is doing her 'reading group' alone with the teacher. She is also well above them in math but they are doing nothing to keep her challenged. We work on adding and subtraction, complex and 3d shapes at home. I have stopped working on her reading at home since they are actually doing that at school but I want to work with her handwriting and spelling.
I found a yearly spelling list off of a home school site for first grade. Over the last week or so I have had her sit with me and we did half of the list(me asking her writing) Out of 105 she missed 13. Is it better to work on them 5-6 at a time like they do at school or since this is just at home work, just work slowly on the whole list or one or two a day for a while.
Before anyone says I am pushing her to hard, I am not. When she ask to stop we stop. We don't do it everyday and she is an eager learner. She was mad at me the other day for not teaching her multiplication like her brother does. Today i gave her one page in a math book and she chose to do 3 instead. Actually I cut her off at 3 and made her go play. lol.
On a side note... is if odd that I have to make my child go play? Is it odd she is just as happy writing a story, reading or doing math as she is with her toys or outside, maybe more so?
