He's now been in 1st grade for a couple of months and likes it pretty well. The teacher works really hard to meet each student where they are and the principal is very easy to work with as well. He's grouped with the more advanced kids for their MTSS time, so is working on STEM skills and currently doing a research project. He's getting challenged well in grammar also. I am not 100% sure how I feel about his math placement, but overall I think his needs are being met the best they can at the moment. He's learning science and social studies and really enjoys music, art and gym. He gets along well with his peers and enjoys school.

I still have absolutely no regrets about teaching him young, despite the initial stress of this school year. Our learning time together was always intended to be fun and never took too much of his day. He had plenty of time to play. More than teaching him anything specific, I think I taught him how to learn. He LOVES to read and drinks in stories, characters and information. He has fantastic recall and figures things out quickly. He likes learning and being challenged.
