Hi my name is Amanda I have 2 kids currently in public school (3rd and 1st grades). I would love to homeschool, but hubby and I are not 100% on it. Kids are doing GREAT in school they love it. They are both very smart and well above grade level. They have both been tested for gifted however neither of them were accepted into the program. My daughter (1st grade) is in an advanced reading class...she reads at a 4th grade level. But everything else is on grade level. They tried at the beginning of the year to do a grade skip but she was not emotionally ready for it. She is a perfectionist and put too much stress on herself so they moved her back to a first grade classroom. She gets all A's and barely has to study...with the exception of spelling. My son on the other hand is in all regular classes, has A's and B's but struggles with the daily classroom tasks. He has brought home everything from A's to F's on his tests, classwork etc. He is all over the map. I was told he is "immature" and has a hard time focusing. He gets in trouble a lot for goofing around and talking. He is a VERY smart boy. He just tested on a 6th grade level for math. Yet he failed his last math test?? I want my kids to have to best education, and I am afraid they are being held back and are bored with the stuff they are being taught. I guess I don't have any real questions here....just asking for advice on what to do in this situation. Any info or past experiences would be very helpful! Thanks Ladies!!
