  • Because someone taught it to her or she taught herself. She just doesn't know that she is adding and subtracting yet. I had a 5 year old in my preschool class that taught himself to read at 4 years old. He can also add, subtract and multiply. He knew the beginning sounds of all the letters, so he just sounded out the words until he got them right.
