I realize you are looking at it from a teacher's pers...See More

Nicki-Teacher This class may acrually benefit your son. I am teaching a 2/3 combo right now. I have high leveld 2nd Grade kids and low to middle third graders. It is benificial to the thrid graders to get review of what they learned last year to help them bridge to the third grade content being taught.
