SZ2009 asks:

Should my 5 yr old repeat kindergarden?

My 5 year old talkative girl with a lot of imagination, patience, love for art and books is suggested to repeat kindergarden.  Because she is not socially interacting in class with others (playing, doing stuff together but not talking that much) and she is not answering questions when asked in a group.  But with the same kids, she is talking non-stop and playing at play dates and talking to even strangers.  It is very hard for us to make a decision, should let her repeat with a new teacher and new students (the current teacher is moving to grade one with the current students) or should we let her go on and try to build her confidence to speak up in class with the existing friends.  She talks and very independent outside of class.  Also, has no stranger anxiety.  Academically she is doing very well (reads fluently and can write properly and also good at math)  even if she is to repeat, they said, they will give her reading and math on her level, but won't that also isolate her from the rest of the new class?  Please advice.  thanks
