My DS is in grade 2 I want to start doing definitions of words and such...I was talking to another parent and she said that grade 2 is too young...Thing is he is reading chapter books, and loves learning but is that too much pressure ...as of now I am not homeschooling him....but if I get approved for Disabilty (meaning I can stay home since I am a single mom) I am really thinking about it

And he already knows the meaning of most words but I want the more complex words and such...Or will he be bored in grade 3 cause I am doing too much this year. (happened in grade1 and 2)
I did all the Dolch words by myself since his grade 1 teacher didnt belive in sight words but the other grade 1 classes were doing them. and I didnt want him behind now I want to give him a leg up. Reading comes so easily to him that I want him challanged a little
