Hi Monte, dunno if you'll see this or not. I just found out that my 8 year old son tested as "gifted" in math at the end of grade 2. I'm feeling a bit of the Spiderman "with great power comes great responsibility" pressure now. What are your thoughts? His grade 3 teacher is very good and giving him lots of extra enrichment in several subjects, planning that next year in grade 4 he'll be in a mixed 4/5 class and basically merge with the 5s and then go onto grade 6 with them. It seems reasonable to me, but if he's really bright, that won't last long, and by grade 7 he'll be bored again. Any insights or advice you might have would be very welcome. He's in public school in Canada, btw, learning in French, speaking English and Spanish at home.
