DS's teacher mentioned testing him for a gifted program recently. DS has been reading for a year now and she said he seems bored in class. He doesn't want to color and she took away his recess b/c he didn't finish his seatwork...I told her that I thought that would make him resent school since she was taking away his free-play time. She agreed. I was mostly bothered b/c he wasn't listening to his teacher at the time.
Anyways, what are your experiences with testing for giftedness at such a young age? My sister was in a gifted program started from Kind. on up.
