I KNOW some kids can, but it it really considered "behind" for my 5 yr old to not be able to write a complete sentence on her own WITH CORRECT capitalization, spaces and punctuation, and read small books??? Her teacher said she needs to be able to do those things and is falling behind. I can't believe that is considered behind. She can sound out simple words like bag, bug, ect... and read simple sentences like "It is hot". She just turned 5 in June so she is one of the younger ones, should I have started her a year later? I really think she is in the range of normal.Answer Question

I agree with ronjwake. Mine is writing longer sentences than that. I was informed during the summer before mine started kindergarten that he was supposed to be reading going in to kindergarten. I guess that makes it really easy on the teachers.

"Although my son is now a Freshman in high school"
You can't be that old! Sorry, I just thought I'd bust your chops a bit! LOL, you look way too young to have a freshman.
