    He has always loved any math we have exposed him to. He is very creative with math, and has always naturally understood how to break numbers apart and recompose them. It is like a fun game for him. We are hoping that having him with the high level group of fifth graders will keep him engaged and a little challenged by his peers. We haven’t pushed any math on him, but we’ve made sure he had things available (beast academy) whenever he was interested. He absolutely lights up when he learns something new.

    Thank you for the tips. Those camps look amazing, and I will definitely have them on my radar.

    When I look around here, my story is not that bragworthy, but where we live kids aren't supposed to do anything but play before they're 6. We are 'those parents' just for letting DS5 read. All around us, people are bragging about their 5-year-old learning to ride a bike (our DD2 rides a bike). So...

    DS5 started reading just before turning 4. He only practiced in the weekends (like 10 mins a week) and started in his second language. Now, a year later, we find him reading any picture book to his younger sister in both languages. His favourite book at the moment is David Walliam's Fing and he likes reading ask magazine and national geographic kids, which is great to help him with other interests. I'm so proud, because we both love reading and always wanted our kids to share that love.
