What grade are you in?
I just decided how to answer this! And that may sound weird to some of you, but let me explain my hesitancy on being definitive on this till this very moment.
First of all we homeschool. That means I teach my daughter where she is and we move on as things are completed.
Second, we're pretty much unschoolers and I like it that way. There's no beginning and end of our educational year, we just do stuff all year round. So there's no year end promotion.
Third, two almost three years ago, my daughter was a young five. If we had done the public school option, we could have entered her the day after she turned five or the day after she turned six into kindergarten. But we weren't in public school and didn't have to decide at that moment how old she would be as she entered each grade.
Fourth, we're starting to do more things in the big wide world and it's finally time to pick a grade and work with it, changing the number each end of May so that people can put us in group.
Therefore, my daughter is currently in the second grade and will be entering into the third grade this fall.
With that announcement, I'm going to finish folding laundry and then make some lunch.
Have you made any decisions lately?
