My son's teacher is recommending that I think about having my son skip a grade, she thinks that it might be what he needs with his boredom and that it might help him with his focus level. I have had many different feedbacks but not from any one that has had to think about this kind of situation. At one point I think it might be good, but I also don't know because he is a bit small for his age but his intellect is well above what it should be. He is reading is well advanced and his writing is too. Math is great as well. His principal even agreed that it might be just what he needs. She also wants to start on research projects to help keep him busy each week. I don't know what to do. I thought about letting him start the third grade and if it doesn't work out after the first month, then move him back. I need a little more feedback please help me?
