My 4 y/o is soaring in preschool. He just turned 4 on April 11th, and started preschool January 4th of this year. I haven't spoken to his preschool of what is going to be expected of him through out the year and by the end of next year when he enters kindergarten. He loves learning, but his social skills are very lacking. We do different things in the community but he hasn't opened up to a lot of kids yet. Which worries us, but he may just be very shy. So I'm wondering - academically what will be expected of him to enter? Trying to get little lesson plans together for the summer so he just doesn't magically 'forget' and go back to square one in September?Answer Question

I think your son will do great! And over the summer make your lesson plans more hands on before its time to focus on school. As far as your child being shy, if you think it will be an issue I would just give his teacher a heads up. Also ask your child's preschool teacher how he interacts with the kids there. The teachers in both settings should be able to come up with a number of good ideas to get him to open up more if they thinks its necessary. But I definitely wouldn't force it on him - like trying to push him into friendships. An easier way to approach it would be to play a game with your son at the park, invite another child to play and once they are both into the game you kind of fall back.
