I need the opinions of actual kindergarten teachers to help me make a decision regarding my four-year-old son. He will be five in April. He has always been home with me, never in a preschool classroom. He goes to gymnastics, preschool choir, library story time, Sunday School, has played soccer and hated it and will be playing t-ball in May (his choice). He has always had a strong desire to learn. He is reading simple books now, like the Otto series, some Dick and Jane, a little Seuss and some other random early readers. He loves, loves, loves to write and draw and can spell several words by sounding them out by himself. He also knows several sight words. He can do simple addition and subtraction with the use of blocks and without the use of blocks. He totally understands colors, shapes, and even how to mix to come up with different colors. He follows directions very well and has never once not gotten both of his Tootsie Rolls in gymnastics in 2 years, and they are stingy with the Tootsie Rolls. He is polite and considerate and follows rules with no problems. We go to the zoo, library, museum and wherever else that has something interesting going on. He has several friends that we play with and has one really, really close friend. My question is, knowing that, if you had the option of homeschooling him next year, would you? I just really hate to have him be ahead and get bored and deal with children who behave badly at this age because he truly has a love of learning. I don't want him to lose that. I will probably send him to public school at some point, but right now does not seem like the time. What would you, as a kindergarten teacher, do for your child? Thank you for your opinions. I was happy to come across this site because I want the opinions of those who really know what the classroom realities are.
