Emily was probably one of the first ones to start school, as such her teacher has already evaluated/assessed her. I talked to her personally about three weeks ago at which time she was very aware of the fact that Emily is reading at a 2nd grade level. I tried to tell her this in the beginning, but DH feels I just came off looking like a SNOB and braggart. OOPS. Not my intention.
Two weeks ago, Emily was placed in a first grade class for reading and grammar during the morning. After that she returns to kindergarten for the rest of the day. Both teachers feel that she is able to read more words that she actually understands, so they were going to see how the curriculum meets her needs and go from there.
This is the second week she's being going to 1st grade and she seems to be fine with it all. She is so big (physically) that she fits right in with the 1st graders. By the end of the week I'll have to talk to both teachers and see how she's doing and if any adjustments need to be made to her "Education Plan."
Just wanted to let ya'll know...
