See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
i am struggling with what I need to do with my Daughter. She turned 6 in Early June. She was in Classic Kindergarten this previous school yr. (just ended) Classic kindergarten is basically glorified Pre-school. They do a test on the kids to see where they should be placed. 'regualr' kindergarten or classic. They opted to put my daughter in classic. I feel that was a bad choice, but didn't fight it overly much because i had so much pushing fro the school district.
Now fast forward to the end of the yr. My girl is at the top of her class. & she has 'behavioral issues'. She doesn't stay on task, she talks frequently, she is distracting. I was talking to a friend who is an early education teacher also, & she said she could be bored. I talked with her kindergarten teacher & was asking if we should just do 1st grade next yr & she said no way.
i don't know what to do at this point. Are there any kindergarten/1st grade teachers that have any experience with this kind of thing? Should I have her tested for 1st grade? My child does not had ADD or ADHD & I'm worried the teachers will push me to medicate her if it is a simple bordom issue!
