My friend has a son the same age as my daughter. His teacher told her that he is not ready to move on to first grade because he can't read or even sound out words.
So my question is what does he actually have to know to move on? The teacher wants to hold him back. I know there was a minimum that my daughter had to know last year to move on.
Anyone know? TIA
They need to recognize letters and know the sounds of those letters. They need to know their sight words(each school is different) . They need to know how to write those letters and they also need to know how to write out a word by the sound(becos=because) (rit=write). They need to recognize numbers . I think this sight will help:

This site will tell you the typical course of study for every grade. I homeschool and actually print these out for myself. As we go through the year, I check off everything we've done to help keep myself on track.
