I'm certainly glad we did it! If anything, I'm not sure it will have been enough. Other than struggling with writing speed (which is a big enough struggle that a bigger skip wouldn't have been possible without significant support), she's breezing through the classwork. I keep thinking that the settling in period will end, and the "real work" will start soon, but maybe not?

She's not breezing through the twice-weekly gifted pullout, but her frustrations are that it's too much writing (which is the speed issue again), and boring (hard to say whether it's "uninteresting topic boring" or "I don't want to work as hard as I'm being asked to boring").
