2013 - 2014 First Day of School
Today I will start teaching a 4th grade wiggly boy and a Pre-K/Kindergarten Pink Power Ranger.
I'm not really sure what to call Rachel's grade level. By most standards she is in pre-school or pre-k(pre-kindergarten) this year because she didn't turn 5 by the September cut off for Kindergarten. But who decides this magic cut-off date for what education level a child should be taught? Rachel turns 5 in October and will be using a Kindergarten curriculum. But I have to be careful that she doesn't get hung up on being a "kindergartener" because when I sign her up for our homeschool nature science class or swim lessons, she will be considered a preschooler simply because of her age.
