OK so I know many of you dont even make yourself aware of grade levels ect (no biggie) and others dont test. BUT we just started spelling test in Dec. I have found we are VERY behind in spelling. It bothers me. Our book is 36 weeks she wont be ready for the next grade until Nov. and that is doing it all summer (which I plan on anyways). We are kinda ahead in Math. In the way when we start a new topic we go further than needed since she is so good at it. She is right on target in reading. And science and social studies Im pretty sure that are no real standards in early grades as long as they are learning how to use tools and questions.
ALSO among homeschoolers, its usually a 'thing' to be ahead. I cant stress over that have 1 child with special needs..but still How do you all feel? Deal? ect when you realize a child is behind. She is doing well with the new curriculum for spelling but our first try in early fall put her behind when it didnt work out. <<vent over>>
