    Hi Butterflyice,

    I mailed my son's class teacher regarding the books they follow ...
    She says they don't follow any book in particular for English.They have many books in the library students can pick any book of their level and must read daily.One book is read in the class daily.

    Science and Social will start from grade 2 depending on the students level.

    And for Math the syllabus is add up to 12 sub up to -12.

    Regarding changing of home, waiting for RFE to clear there time till July 16.

    Once again I thank you !!
    Regards
    Jaya

    @dasikajl, Reading Eggs, Education.com, Adapted mind all have English curriculum that you can use to supplement school education. Annual subscription is nominal, a lot less than Kumon et al.
    You can also ask your school teacher if your son can do the Summer program at school. Kids get extra instruction during the summer (its usually only half a day) in Language and Math. If the teacher recommends and you think your son needs it, he can go for it.

    @dasikajl , I just checked the school district website. They do have summer programs aimed at both English learners and the general English and Math learners. IF your kid is lagging only in English and is on par at Math, you can ask your teacher to recommend him for the ELL English program.

    @dasikajl , I just checked the school district website. They do have summer programs to catch up in English and math. Ask your teacher to recommend your kid to the program if thats required.

    Good to know. Good luck with the move. There should be private preschools available. Check around.
    What happened to the move to Schaumburg? Its a better school district.
