DS1 is an advanced reader. He's in 1st grade and currently reading books like The BFG, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, Superfudge, etc. No, not genius status, but he's so far ahead of the little readers that his teacher has him doing.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can get him to be challenged more in school? His teacher hasn't been very helpful in this area -- he just gets assigned the same work as everyone else. There is no G&T program in the district. He loves, loves, loves reading.
