Re: Would you start with K or 1st Gr?

I think it depends on what type of curriculum you go with. DS is very advanced in math and reading but he isn't ready for a more advanced curriculum in science or history. He doesn't have the attention span to work at a higher level in those subjects. I piece different things together to make the best fit for him. I also think some K reading/math programs are more advanced than others. We use Hooked on Phonics and with that program I'd place your daughter in Kindergarten reading. We use Singapore for Math and I'd place her in Kindergarten B or 1st for Singapore. You could also start her in K now and move quickly through it so she'd be in 1st by the fall if you schooled year round.
