My 7 year old who's in 1st grade got tested to see what level she was reading, and she scored a 3.2 (3rd grade 2 month level) She is way ahead of her class. My sister in law's son, is also in 1st grade and failed the test because he does not know how to read. She was informed by the school that she would either have to teach him how to read, or he may be held back a grade, because 2nd graders have to know how to read. Now she is upset saying that the kindergarten that he attended was suppose to teach him how to read...??? I would not know, because my daughter did not attend kindergarten, and was taught how to read, do math, and other things at home. She was actually reading and writing at the age of 4.
Correct me if I am wrong but wasn't she suppose to be the one teaching her son as well??? Are you informed in kindergarten that you will be required to be able to read in 1st grade??? I really think it's her fault.
