My daughter is in junior kindergarten. She is very very smart. Not being an ass, she is just smart. Her peers are reading "level 1" and "level 2" books, and she is reading "level 18" books.
She is very eccentric and quirky.
I went to her classroom observation today and saw her ask other children to play with her and get rejected repeatedly. I was tearing up by the door..Her teacher told me that only a few kids want to play with her. The teacher also told me that my daughter only wants to hang out alone or with the teachers/helpers.
I don't know what to do for her. I think she is hilarious and fun, but the other 4-5 year olds obviously just don't get her...
Thank you to everyone who gave actual advice or encouragement and didn't just insult me or my daughter.
I talked with her dad and we are going to look together for some sort of extra curricular activity for her that we can afford.
I'm going back and re reading some replies that I only got a chance to skim.
anyway, thanks again.
[and for those that keep asking, in my province kids start school the year they turn 4. They do 2 years of kindergarten, JK and SK.]
