We had a meeting yesterday with her kindergarten teacher, first grade teacher, title 1 reading teacher, the principal and a 3rd grade teacher observing. They all seemed to agree that Emily would be better suited in FIRST GRADE as the kindergarten curriculum would not provide her with enough of a challenge for her to grow and NOT be bored.
We spoke at length about her reading, math and maturity level and they all seem to feel she would excel in first grade just like she does now in kinder. We talked and talked about everything and it was agreed that she would be placed in 1st grade for a trial period of 4 weeks. At that point we'd meet again to reassess her needs and how well she's doing and go from there.
She is supposed to start on Monday, so wish us luck with it all. Let's hope everything goes smoothly.
