Dick and Jane are Boring!

Liam has been complaining for a while that he didn’t find Kindergarten very challenging. These complaints culminated in a meltdown the other day before class, shouting to Kathy he didn’t want to go, and that it was too boring, and he didn’t like it there. His teacher eventually came outside where he was bawling, and talked with him and Kathy, and decided to have him tested out for accelerated reading and math programs.

Today he took those tests, and we found out that he’s reading comfortably at a third grade level, and his math skills are nearly as far along. Poor little guy; it’s no wonder he’s been bored silly! The teachers are setting him up for self-paced work now, which I think will keep him much more engaged.
