We know that our January babies are and always will be the oldest kids in their classes, and that's usually a great advantage for them.
My daughter is almost 6 and in a JK/SK class where some of the kids are almost 2 full years younger than her. Last year she would come home every day full of stories of what she did at school and how much fun she had. This year she just shruggs and tells me that she didn't do anything. I've asked her teacher what's being done to encourage her and keep her working at her intelligence level, but all I'm ever told is "some SK kids are working at a JK level, and some JK kids are working at an SK level, so we do a lot of small group work" This doesn't mean anything!
My daughter is bored and I want her teacher to keep her engaged and interested at school, but I don't seem to be getting anywhere with her.
Any suggestions on talking to the teacher or school?
