Kung qualified ma-accelerate anak nyo gugustuhin nyo ba?
« on: March 24, 2011, 09:58:47 pm »
Nag aaral sa public school ang pamangkin ko, according to her mom ma-accelerate daw yung anak nya from grade 2, magiging grade 4 na sa pasukan, the kid will be 8 next month, actually advance na nga siya ng 1 year kung i-compare dun sa standard age requirement sa mga private schools.  Malaking achievement ito para sa bata pero di ba ito masyadong nakakapressure? What is your take on this?

I don't think masama ang acceleration... but ang malaking tanong: Acceleration in lahat ba ng areas of intelligence?

Shempre in a traditional school setting, this means lahat ng subjects (Reading or English, Social Studies, Filipino, Science, Math.. etc) Excellent siya! But, in real life... look at the scenario din. 

If maaccelerate siya pero magulat naman siya sa Grade 4, baka naman mawala ang confidence kasi malaki ang gap niya or ma OP dahil mas mature ang kasama.  Baka you can request the teacher to try it out first in a week or 2 then if the child seems to blend in well, then go.  Also, if mukhang kaya naman at mas nachachallenge ang bata - go for it!  But, if not and the child gets more upset - ibalik na agad at as parents wag tayong ma dismaya dun.

We should keep in mind, that bata ang priority and hindi tayong parents. :)

I am thinking about this too.
I have a nephew who was accelerated from nursery to prep. Okay naman sya, nakakasabay sa classmates nya. Yun lang di na sya yung may highest grade unlike nung dun pa sya sa ka batch nya. Which I think is okay as long as nakakasabay nga sya. Ewan ko lang dun sa nanay nya. Hehe

Now yung anak ko magsschool na this year. Sabi nung administrator nung school na naginterview sa anak ko, pwede na i-skip ng anak ko ang nursery kase advance yung alam nya kahit pa sa kinder. Medyo nagdadalawang isip ako kasi nagwworry ako na baka naman maiwan/mabigla yung anak ko. Sabi naman ng administrator, possible kasi na ma-bore naman ang anak ko kung alam na nya yung tinuturo ng teacher.

having a daughter who got accelerated fr. kinder to prep i must say we made the right decision.  kasi if di mo accelerate ma bored lang sya sa lessons.  so far hindi naman sya napag iiwanan, in fact, nag honor pa evenif self-study lang sya...

pero sis i dont know lang if skipping nursery would be best if it would be the 1st time mag school ni baby.  bkaa mabigla sya sa kinder...  much better if nursery, then skip kinder to prep na...

^ thanks sis vanj19. ayun nga din and worry ko. na baka mabigla ang anak ko kung kinder sya agad kasi nga 1st time nya magschool. or baka mapag-iwanan sya kung isasama sya dun sa mga kinder na mas older sa kanya and dumaan sa nursery.

sabi ni administrator, alam na nga daw ng anak ko even yung tinuturo nila sa kinder. Problem lang medyo mahiyain pa daughter ko. so ang suggestion nya instead of going back sa enrollment pa, balik kami sa April and then parang ipapa join ang anak ko dun sa parang summer class (?) para lang mafeel ng daughter ko how it's like na mag-school. Para masanay lang sya na may classmates.

Now di ako maka decide. I wonder too if possible yung gaya ng sinabi ni iceebaby na ipa-try muna sa bata then kung okay naman and kaya, ituloy? Ewan ko ba ba't di ko naisip itanong to. Biglaan lang kasi napadaan sa school non, di ko napaghandaan. And yes, first time ko kaya medyo alaluts ako. haha! Naoverwhelm ako sa mga narinig ko. Hmm, balik nga ko dun this february.

Sis TS, I was accelerated from 4th grade to 5th grade (ngayon I'm in my late 20's so do the math hehe). Anyway, the only thing na nahirapan ako is yung social life kumbaga. Kasi classmates ko nagdadalaga na, nagsisimula na sa puberty eh ako late bloomer na nga, talagang late pa din sa compared sa kanila. hindi rin ako interested pa sa boys tulad nila that time so i'm the odd one out lagi.
totoo yung sinabi ng ibang sis natin dito, nakakabore talaga pag alam na ng bata yung subject matter. ako nagdo-doodles na lang sa likod ng exam sheets ko while the rest of my classmates are still doing theirs during exams. saka madaling matuto ang mga bata at maka-adapt sa lessons. tipid ka pa kasi when i was accelerated 3rd grading quarter na. so yung mga requirements and projects ng first 2 ay exempted ako. kaya tipid gastos talaga haha!
Isa pa, nasanay ako before nung nasa lower grade ako na lagi akong top 1. nung a-accelerate ako until i finished highschool never na akong nakapasok sa top 5. dinamdam ko din yun when i was a kid. Yun lang naman mga naging experiences ko that time. So I think ok lang naman if talagang mas makakabuti yon eh. saka kung yun ang gusto ng bata, wala siyang hesitations, e di go.

If that were my kid, I wouldn't allow it.
Mentally accelerated sure, but it is not automatically emotional acceleration.
How will it be like when she is 13 and hindi pa pinapayagan mag party tapos ang classmates nya na 16yo eh may mga bf na???

To compensate for her wider mental capability.... give her extracurricular activities na lang.

^ I agree with you sis aquacharly, masyado din maprepressure yung bata, sa mga mommy aba syempre ang saya, at talagang proud tayo, kaso sa bata baka di na sya maka adopt sa mga classmates nya, though magaling sya mentally, pero in terms ng interest baka di na sya maka level sa classmates nya.. baka gusto nya ay sesame street eh yung mga classmates nya ay High school musical na ang type... something like that, kung ako di rin papayag, gusto i enjoy na pagiging bata nya, tulad ng pag enjoy ko sa childhood ko :)

I got accelerated for 2 years way way back, and I'm very thankful to my parents. If not, I probably might be bored to death by now, mag-4th year college pa lang ako niyan. Mygoodness! :P

Saya sana kung accelerated yung anak ko kasi less gastos for me and my husband  But then again, we would have to consider the welfare of the child, siguradong ma-out of place siya doon sa mga kasama niya kung iba na ang level niya.  He/she will be placed among students who are chronologically older than them and emotionally more mature (?) than them.  Siguro I will let him/her take the advance level classes and invite her playmates/friends over or organize activities for them para naman she has socialization din among her age-group.

I skipped Grade 3 years ago 'coz I finished the module within that year, my school then is a progressive type (not so popular pa nung time na yun).  Major drawback is when I transferred to a traditional school.  My teacher and classmates has high expectation on how I will perform sa class.  Feeling nila dapat laging perfect ang score ko sa exams which nahirapan ako i-keep up because of the pressure.  Also, they were older than I am, so hindi ako maka relate sa trip nila. :)

My turning 4 year old daughter will skip Nursery this school year, she attended though a toddler class pero since advance ang knowledge niya sa age niya as well as her emotional stance (her lessons are for Nursery naman din), I had her try the exam for Prep (the school changed the labeling coz of K+12, nauna ang Prep sa Kinder) and nakapasa naman.  I have yet to check next week on how she will perform sa class considering that she transferred school din.

My brother was in the cream section in a private boys' school before. Generally, their lessons are more advanced than the other section. So from grade 2 or 3 it was really demanding. If they finish grade 6 and they're still in that section, they get to skip grade 7. My brother then was in their football varsity but since he cannot juggle the demands of varsity and cream section, my parents had to ask him to stop with varsity. My brother agreed but he demanded that come high school they'll have to be less strict on academics. He skipped 7th grade pero pag dating nga HS academics wasnt a priority. Di naman siya bagsak bagsak but it was not as stellar as Grade school. Oh and until now he hasn't made my parents forget how they made him stop football. It is still on of his hang ups.

My son accelerated from kinder to prep. at first I got excited and proud syempre hindi lahat ng bata may achievement na at very young age. Pero as time passed by medyo napansin ko yung cons. Minsan sa P.E. class nila which is swimming. napansin kong tinu tulak tulak siya ng mga mga classmate niya. kasi maliit lang ang anak ko, hanggang balikat lang ng ibang classmate niya, kasi mostly 2 years older na sa kanya. Minsan pag naglalaro sila, naiiwan siya kasi ang bagal niyang tumakbo. minsan naiisip ko baka ma bully sa school, kasi baby pa kumilos.

Sa academic performance hindi naman siya ngpapahuli, consistent honor student. He is 5 years old and grade 1 this coming school year.

I will not.  My sons are playful and are generally less mature than their peers, lalo na if you compare them with the girls. 

Hindi lang yung intellectual capacity ng bata ang dapat i-consider, kundi pati ang emotional readiness niya, imagine makakasama niya sa class ay mas matatanda sa kanya.

My son can skip Kinder daw. So from Nursery, Prep na sya sana this pasukan but I refused. I dont like to stress him so much. I want him to enjoy the learning process. Plus, I guess he'll feel insecure once hinalo sya sa big kids.

My eldest, our daughter was accelerated and we were given the option to skip Nursery then so she's a year younger than her classmates now. I won't advise it though since I think she was pressured then, baby pa sya in my opinion nuon than her classmates na mas focused na and they have an edge over her since it was already their second year in school.

Ang cons na natatandaan ko:

Observations ni teacher

- She's not focused, minsan nglalaro or take your time sa pagsulat and pagsagot sa exam. even if it's a timed exam.

- she tends to forget stuff na kailangan sa school, misplaces her things.

*mga common stuff na dapat alam or sanay na ang isang bata na nasa level nya.

IMO dapat take your time lang ang kids, let them enjoy school and hayaan lang pumasok sa dapat na nilang level. even if they are academically advanced baka kasi not as matured pa sila Which is what we did with our second child, who actually excels more than his Ate.

So far my daughter is OK now. incoming Gr4 this June and she's nine years old.

 :D

I agree. I love the 'shock' that I get when people find out that I'm this young, and already working :)

I studied educ units and based on what I've learned maraming aspects na dapat tignan sa isang tao.  The child might be very intelligent na sobrang chicken na lang yung grade level para sa kanya but my instructor said can she run like the others? Kaya na ba niyang makipag boyfriend? Maraming aspects talaga.  Ang laging sinasabi ng instructor ng teacher namin the goal of the child is to take every step and master it.  Hindi pwedeng skip.
