Son turned 5 on Oct 30th, so obviously missed the kindergarten cut off. He had Stanford Binet testing and is "gifted" and is at or ahead of everything the kindergarteners are currently doing (writing 1st name, counting, learning address, etc)
I am considering entering him into school after Xmas break... so he can finish the year with peers and then start 1st grade in the fall a month before turning six. My mother in law is horrified, saying that all the kids will reject him terribly since they've already bonded. I say that's dumb since there could be a few new kids, kids transferring classrooms for whatever reason, plus after all those weeks off for break, a new face isn't necessarily a terrible thing.
Anyone done something similar? thoughts/comments welcome
