I talked to my daughter's Kindergarten teacher and she told me that my daughter is really smart. She's had to get after her for blurting out answers instead of allowing the other children to think of the answers.
I know that she needs to slow down and be patient, but at the same time I'm afraid that she's going to become very bored with it. Can anyone give me any advice on any of this?

Another teacher here, I agree with the PP. Kindergarten is about alot more than academics. Skipping her could be very detrimental from a social/emotional perspective. Let your daughter enjoy school and continue to enrich her at home. The curriculum will get more difficult as the year progresses. Kindergarten generally starts off at a slower pace to give the students time to adjust. If she is truly advanced she could be moved up later or maybe tested for a gifted program. Give her a while ( maybe a few years) to see how she does.

Maybe you could get her into an extra curricular activity to keep her mind busy. If she's still very advanced next year, maybe an accelerated curriculum is in order, if you have that where you live. Good luck!
