Ok obviously she doesn't know it all.
But for anyone who doesn't remember us- im the mom who homeschools on the side. DD goes to public school during the day. At the beginning of the year they tested her (shes in the 1st grade by the way) and she is reading at a 4th grade level. Her teacher hasnt given us a reading assignment yet (spelling words, books, anything) that DD has had to actually study or work at. The teacher will give them their spelling words typed out on a piece of paper as the kids are leaving for the day. DD comes home and I run through them real quick and she can spell everything without a blink of an eye.
Weve talked to the principal because DD just isnt being challenged and its just frustrating. The school policy doesnt allow us to put her in any advanced classes until 2nd grade. And she suggested we just "homeschool" outside of normal school. So we "homeschool" on weekends, and about 3 days during the week.
OK i said all of that to say that im out of ideas of what to work on. I don't want to mess up anything or confuse her. I don't want to teach her something that is over her head but i know that i cant follow the first grade guidelines because shes above that. But i know there are things that you need to lead up to and learn other things first...IDK. maybe im over thinking it. But i just dont know what to do.
Ive tried just following her interests and weve studied the planets, space, the atmosphere (shes even done video reports on it all), whales, dinosours, volcanos, clouds/weather, etc. Now when I ask her what she would like to learn or what she be interested in she says "I dont know".
So any suggestions on what we can do? I guess were just looking for a challenge. Something to keep her busy and thinking.
