My 5 yr old sat down with the magnadoodle yesterday and started writing out math problems. He was speaking them aloud as he did. I heard him saying things like, "9+5 is 14, -1 from that is 13....." Later he was talking about wanting to play Candy Land and he said "You know, candy and land both have a-n-d in them and they are in the same order in each word."
His teacher says he is very advanced but he is very immature behavior wise. I agree with that. He's been having tantrums lately about everything. When he is not acting like a 2 yr old though, he seems more like he is 10+.
How would you work on the immaturity? I don't know what brought it on, but it's really annoying. He'll do stuff like ask the teacher to go to the bathroom and she'll tell him to use the one in the room and that'll lead to a meltdown because he likes the one in the hall better. Or he'll flip out because a green crayon is not available (he is verrrrrry obsessed with green) or things like that.
