GS10 took the Star reading test the first week back to school. I can't remember exactly what his reading level was at the end of 4th grade, but he jumped between 3 & 4 grade equivalents over the summer, to 12.8 grade equivalent! Isn't it amazing what a kid can learn when school gets out of the way? grin

DH said again that we should look at accelerating him. But GS is a hugely social child, and it's taken a lot to get him accepted by his age peers. He has 3 super good friends in his grade level now, I don't want to start over with that. Besides, even though I've had some frustrations with his teachers over mundane tasks, he continues to put an increasing academic level between himself and most of his age peers.
