My 5 yr old will be starting kindergarten in August. She is already reading simple chapter books and spelling 8 + letter words (firetruck, rainbow, invited, etc). She's also adding/subtracting double-digits. I was gifted myself, but my mom took a backseat to my education until I was in 3rd grade. Should I wait for the teacher to discuss this with me? I don't want to be a mom who thinks her child is smarter than she really is.
