my comment on accelerated child:

my freind told me na hinde daw nakakatulong ang mag accelarate sa school, as for his experience. hindi naman sya na bully, ang problem lang ay nung mga ka age level ang mga classmate niya he's on top. but after accerating, he's having a hard time in keeping up with his classmate in terms of activities sa sports basta if require physical activies. he was always left behind kasi he the smallest and the youngest. feeling niya he need to be the best para makapantay sa mga classmate niya thinking na mas advance yun classmate niya sa developement physically and mentally. at dahil nag hahabol sya para maka level sa classmate niya he didnt enjoy the joy of learning...parati daw kasi pressure.

@techo_green: i agree sis. i realized the folly of my decision when my son got accelerated from pre-nursery to kinder na (skipped nursery). i felt that if he studies nursery again, then he'll get bored kasi, he knows it already, considering that he's ranked two in the whole class.

so, baby is accelerated in a different school. apart sa he has to cope with new classmates, he has to cope with new school/environment. sadly, he didn't like the new school. he was always "tired". he keeps on saying he doesn't want to go to school. he doesn't want his teacher. we tried if adjustment problems lang.i had the yaya sit in his class, pero ayun...tamad na tamad. he sleeps on his desk and doesn't initiate to participate, unlike dun sa old school niya.

now i know why there are "appropriate" ages for kids per level. it's not so much as baka di kaya ng brain nila eh. it's baka di pa sila ready emotionally, or physically like sa sports and other motor skills.

at the PTA meeting, my son's quizzes was returned. he scored two zeros on the past exams. i asked yaya why. teacher said, because he doesn't want to write. when i shared this info with his old teacher, she said, they don't expect students at his age, to write very well because they are too young. they should still be guided in answering, and not that pressured to write. there are ages for readiness and age, should be taken into consideration, apart from level.

so, he's back to his old school. dapat ata, pag super bata pa, montessori approach.  ;)

OT to mga mommies pero share ko na din. my hubby got accelerated when he was in highschool. after 1st year, he was accelerated to 3rd year. pero nung mag aapply siya to take the entrance exam sa UP nung malapit na kami mag graduate, he was not accepted. need kasi nila ng 4 years na grade mo sa highschool.  :o

sa experience ko naman, both my 2 kids started schooling when they were 3 yrs old ... ang style namin ni hubby, sa maliit na school lang na yung parang house type at mga 5 to 10 lang ang students namin sila pinag nursery .. para lang ba maintindihan nila yung concept ng schooling at matutong makisalamuha sa maraming bata .... then kinder, transfer namin sa bigger school pero yung mga 10 pa lang din per class para natututukan pa ni teacher ... pag prep na, transfer na namin dun sa preferred namin na school talaga na medyo 15 to 25 students per class na .. ayun, effective naman sa kanila .. di sila nabigla sa pagpasok, parang slowly but surely approach .... both of them naman are doing good in school .... :-)

i believe in progressive teaching method. this days, you can find younger than 20 months on playschool. my daughter started her Gymboree classes when she is still 1 year old. Super helpful kasi mas madaldal siya and comfortable with other kids. Wala kasi siyang kalarong bata. Anyway, she is 2 1/2 years old na and we figured na next year nalang siya ipasok for nursery.. well, sobrang gusto na niya pumasok sa school.. she misses her teacher, the activities...

Re: Acceleration, it is the best course for gifted/fast learners. There are lots of studies to support this. Acceleration is one of the ways to challenge a gifted learner (others are gifted programs and IEP or individualized educational plan). Pero, dapat the school knows how acceleration works, hindi yung basta-basta nalang mag-accelerate just because of the child's academic achievement. Although one factor ang achievement, dapat tine-test din ang IQ level ng bata or the capacity to learn and speed of learning ng bata as well as his readiness to move up.  Ganito ang sistema sa ibang bansa. Sa Public school natin meron ding ganitong mga tests. There are some private schools here too that offer complete assessment for acceleration.

Meron ding di gaano precocious in academics early on pero his IQ level is so high that this kid needs to get accelerated to challenge him and achieve his full potentials. Sometimes the teachers see this type of kids during achievement test. Sila yung mga bata that scores high but doesn't perform well sa classrooms. When these underachieving kids are tested and pass for acceleration, they often perform better when their grade level is moved up or they are given a specialized education program that advances their level in areas that they are precocious on, say 2 or 3 grade levels in reading, math or sciences.

How can I deal with my son being a fast learner? I feel sometimes he gets bored with their school activities. I don't like the idea of acceleration naman kasi parang baka mapilitan naman yung batang tumanda. He speaks talks acts like an 8 year old kasi everyone notices nga na hindi average ang anak ko for his age.
They are still learning the alphabets lahat ng kids di pa marunong magbasa nursery class siya he just turned 4 this aug1. Gusto niyang tinuturuan ko siya ng mga words na di pa niya alam. Like sa phonetics lessons nila. They started with vowels a e i o u. Sa O palang sila natuto na siya magbasa.Ngayon letter D palang daw sila. He knows how to read SH, CH, EE, NG. He writes legibly na rin even before he turned 3 pa.

One incident na nagalala ako is while the Teacher taught the letter C nirerecite niya ang name ng mga kids tapos itatanong niya anong letter nagstart at ano ang sound. Sabi niya Chantal chantal, sabay tawag sa anak ko what letter is that? Sabi niya C, sabi naman ng teacher what is the sound sabi ng son ko CH CH CH tapos she corrected it with C C C. Mali diba? Hay nakita ko reaction ng anak ko dahil alam niyang tama siya sa sinabi niya. I'm worried lang talaga.

@momielle - As I've mentioned in my earlier post, Acceleration is one of the best ways to enrich the learning of a gifted or fast learner. However, if for some reasons you don't like the idea of acceleration, there are other things that parents can do to keep their child challenged intellectually. One is to supplement the teaching at home. You can't expect a regular school to adjust to your child's need, unless you talk to them about your child's situation and they would agree to give your child more challenging tasks. More often, schools won't accommodate such a request because this type of individualized plan means extra work for them. If they agree, then well and good.

Prepare advance lessons for your kids and do it after school. With daily activities that will keep him busy and mentally stimulated, regular school won't be a boring place for him anymore. This strategy however means extra work for you while you still spend money for your child's regular schooling.

Second, you can look for schools that offer SPED education particularly for gifted learners. They know how to handle fast learners. Schools I know that has gifted programs are Headway School for Giftedness and Akademeia (both in QC).

Third, you can homeschool your child and create an IEP or Individualized Educational Program for your child. This means that you can accelerate the learning of your child at home and introduce him to advance concepts that regular school cannot provide. You can team up with a Dev Pedia, a SPED specialist or a school with SPED for gifted learners.

Increasing your child's load should be done gradually. Baka kasi ma-turn off kung biglaan. Kapag parang ayaw na, ibig sabihin, hindi pa sya ready at nao-overwhelm sya. Basta turo lang ng turo, bigay lang ng bigay ng mga bagay na pagkakaabalahan niya at sigurado akong masisiyahan sya.

^hi sis gladys_gvp!

they say there's no right age for schooling, it depends upon the readiness of the child if he/she is already showing some interests of going to school.

this might also help sis  :)

For me, three years old is okay na... :) My sister started to study at 3 (Nursery 1)... Pero I started at 5 (Prep --- accelerated from Kinder) kasi di pa naman ata masyado nauso ang Nursery that time (early 90s) especially sa provinces... I started to learn writing and reading at around 3 (Mom taught me at home)

Ako, personally, I want my baby to start at 3... pero sana Nursery 2 or Kinder na (soooosyal!!  :o ;D), if kaya na niya... Pero if not, okay din lang magNursery 1.. Ang important, kung ano ang kaya niya pati kung super interested na talaga siya... :)
