Do you know how sometimes you know something but since no one has really told you, you can kind of pretend you don’t know or hope that maybe it’s not as bad as you think it is?
Well, now I can’t pretend.
I really know.
It’s really worse than I thought.
My 7 year old took the Woodcock Johnson Achievement test today. I wasn’t particularly eager to test him, but it’s required by North Carolina homeschool law.
He did poorly. Basically he’s not in the 2nd grade.
I’ve always assigned my kids’ grade levels based on their ages. Of course when they were working above their assigned grade levels, it didn’t bother me. I just wanted them to be able to answer the inevitable question about what grade they were in without a blank stare or a long explanation. Now I’m wondering if he should be in the 2nd grade again next year or if it matters.
I’m in uncharted territory for me.
And I’m afraid my husband is going to freak. He’s very much for homeschooling, so I don’t fear that he’s going to want to enroll him in school, just that he’ll think it’s my fault.
And what if it is my fault????
edited to add: My husband didn’t freak. I underestimated him.
