I admit that I've lurked on your board occasionally. My oldest son, Nathan, is about to finish 1st grade. He has a summer birthday and even though he's been one of the youngest in his class, he's been at the top of the class academically. I didn't send him to preschool, but we had "mom school". He caught on to reading so quickly and loves learning. After a waste of a Kindergarten year, we were so happy with his 1st grade teacher this year. She recognized that he was above the others and would give him different/extra work, had him help other students, etc. She and 2 of the other 1st grade teachers split the kids up for math, so he got more advanced instruction in that. This spring he went to a 2nd grade classroom for reading time.
All that to say, he's been accepted into the district's Challenge Program for 2nd grade. It starts in 2nd grade and they have to go thru testing to be accepted. The first round cut was to have MAP testing math or reading scores at the 90% or better (his are 98 and 99) and then they had additionally testing. About 12 kids at his school took the test (out of about 120) and only 2 of them got in. We are super proud of him and so happy that we feel he'll get instruction that can challenge him.
