My son is due to start kindergarten in August, and I just don't feel he's ready. He can sing his ABCs, and count to 11. I have been working with him for quite a while, and it just doesn't seem to be sinking in. He has no desire to learn this stuff. I was spoiled with my older son as he loved learning from an early age and knew ABCs and how to count to 20 at 2 years old. I can't afford preschool, and our income is too high to qualify for headstart.
What's the worst that's going to happen if he's not ready? Retention if he's unable to learn the skills necessary during his first year of kindergarten? Kindergarten is not required by law here, but he obviously needs it very much. I know we have time to continue working on this, but as its taken so long to get to the point we're at now, I'm worried as he'll be testing for Kindergarten at the end of March.
