i wasn't aware this was possible. if so, i'd have done it long ago for my 5 year old turning 6 in October that has to start so late because of birthday cut offs.
anyway, my sister in law posted a picture last night of her daughter's results. she doesn't live with her, so i'm assuming her father took her to a kindergarten round up and had her tested, though she is only 4, turning 5 in October. however, she lives in Michigan so i'm not sure how they do kindergarten and ages up there. (we're in FL). well, my niece scored INCREDIBLY well on this skills assessment.. i guess for her age she should only know about 9-17 letters, and knows 26. same with letter sounds, she should only know 4-8 and knows 24. her overall score was an 80 when the range for her age group is only 31-48. she is clearly advanced and on the paper it says she's recommending her to start Kindergarten a year early. i have a feeling this will be my youngest daughter in a few years. she turned 2 in January and speaks better than my 3 year old. there must have been some super gene lost in the family because neither me, my ex husband, sil or niece's father are THAT smart.. lol
anyway so because the paper shows she's advanced, does this mean a school will allow her to start Kindergarten a year early if that is her dad's choice? or does this just show her future pre-k teacher that she's at an advanced level?
