Skip this post completely if you don't want to ready my mommy brag!
I walked Logan into class today and his teacher told me she had asked the Gifted program teacher to come evaluate Logan. She noticed that he picked up a book at the media center the other day that was more advanced than kindergarten level and heard him reading it. She also mentioned she had started the testing they give each student to evaluate them and that by question #4, he was way ahead of her. She couldn't keep up with whatever it was she had to write. She told me it was the fastest test she had given and she can do these tests in her sleep. LOL Her son is in a gifted program so I'm more comfortable with her evaluation of him.
Now I'm not saying Logan will make it into the program although I hope he will. He may still need to work on his comprehension skills. I tested to get into the program when I was at that school and missed getting in by a few points or something like that. The class is only like 30? minutes a day too so he would still be with his classmates most of the time. I want him to keep learning without having to do the same things all over again in kindergarten that he did in Pre-K. Today for example, they were learning about the letter A. I know there are students in kindergarten who still need to learn their letters so I think this would be a good opportunity for him to push further.
So that's my mommy brag for the day- at least the school part of the day. I'll post about his tumbling accomplishments next. ;)
