Re: Non Twins In The Same Grade>??

not the same thing but my nieces are moving in and my almost 3 year old will start school the same year as my almost 4 year old niece(missed the cut off by a few days). but mine will be homeschooled and my nieces will go to public...but thats probably a good thing bc they tend to clashid vote for different classes.

Re: Non Twins In The Same Grade>??

I think you did your math wrong They should be one grade apart by my calculations

DS will be 5 on 12/14 and go to school in fall of 2015
DD will be 5 on 5/16 and go to school in fall of 2016

The rule here is they must turn 5 before 8/1, so you shouldn't have a problem w/ late or early birthdays (summer birthdays sometimes hold back a year).

I would definately start them in different grades since they will not be the same age and are not twins. I don't know if I will separate my twins in K or not... I am planning to just wait and see how their personalities are developing and what I think they need at that time. If I feel they are ready to be more independant I will separate. If I think they will have a lot of anxiety I will keep them in the same class. I am pretty sure my school lets you have the option.

Yeah I would keep them apart too!

My brother and I were 18 months apart and two grades apart.

Re: Non Twins In The Same Grade>??

My middle two are my "almost twins" who are 13 months apart. Rebekah is in K this year and Caleb is in 1st. These next 2 girls will be 2 years apart in school which I'm hoping will be easier than 1 year apart. I almost wish Caleb and Rebekah were in the same grade because it would be easier for me, but for them I really think it's best that they do have some separation. They have done EVERYTHING together all their lives (they still share a room, and shared a bed until a few months ago) and it's nice that they now have their own friends and their own activities.

Just my

I had to check because math is the farthest thing from my best quality

Our cutoff date is 12-1 for K in Michigan. Sooo... lol bare with me because I might lose some brain cells on this lol.

DS born in 2009+5years=2014 but since he wont turn 5 til after the cutoff he will start in the fall of 2015.
DD born in 2011+5years=2016 and she can start the fall of 2016

sorry I know that is what you already said but I couldn't seem to grasp it lol...


OK now I can relax a little lol
