Noticed that my son's have already done the work they're doing in their grade levels. For third grade english, math and spelling they've already done what's on these worksheets. So i checked the 5th grade out of curiosity and once again, My boys could easily do those worksheets in just a matter of minutes. Same with math, in 3rd grade. So we are starting with decimals and multiplication tables. Even my (almost) 7 year old knows this stuff. Should I be concerned with how fast they are moving through their work? I am starting my oldest on research papers, book reports and essays next week. I tried to find 5th grade spelling worksheets and couldn't find any. Do any of you ladies know where to find some? Also, we went out for a burger last week and my mom and i noticed that other kids don't understand what my kids are saying or talking about. Conversation between my oldest and my another boy at the restaurant didn't go so well since my son was asking, "what is your age?" instead of, "how old are you?" My mom had to translate.
I know my kids talk a little different than others. The ONLY contraction my oldest uses is "Can't" and the only 2 contrations my youngest uses on a part time basis is "Won't, Can't." He uses won't part time. Most of the time it's "would not." My oldest only uses "can't" everything is, "will not, could not, would not, am not, are not, is not, it will, i will, you will..etc.." he refuses to use contractions. I use them ALL the time. but he won't at all. just one. including "I'm." it's always "I am. or I am not."
So sorry for the long and probably confusing post. I've had a very very bad week. So, on top of pain, being sleepy and this pain pill kicking in, I apologize. The question I have is,
Should I be concerned on the level my kids are learning at at their ages, and should i be concered that because they're learning this quickly, is it going to be a problem with socialization and making friends?
