Re: My 1st grader
Aug 31, 2004
My daughter is in the fourth grade, and ever since preschool we were told to keep her back an extra year because of her age. She was born on the 24th of August, which is about a week before the cut off date for children to start kindergarten. Well, my husband and I decided to put her in kindergarten and although she did her work, the teacher felt because of her age we should think about keeping her back. Basically the majority of the children were turning 6 and she was one of the youngest. Every grade since then we were told by her teachers that she was not mature enough, and at times seeing her interact with the other students in her class we can tell a difference in her maturity level, but she still did well on tests and her studies. We knew our daughter was bright enough to excel in her classes and I'm glad we didn't take the advice of her previous teachers and hold her back. We also buy workbooks for her, which I feel give her an advantage when it comes time to do her school work and also keeps her on her toes so hopefully they'll help your daughter.
