My daughter is not going to attend 4k this year. I dont want her to be behind the other kids that are going to be in 5 year old kindergarden next year. I am planning to kinda homeschool her this year so she wont be behind. My question is what should I be teaching her so she will be on the same level as other 5 year olds next year?

My son preschool pre-k program(he starts next month) they teach the planets, evolution of a caterpillar, count by 10's, count to 100, learn to read, 25 sight words,etc. His 3-4 year old class taught him to write his name, spell his name out loud, recognize and write all letters, count to 50, days of the week, months, recite memory verses, brushed up on colors/shapes-most kids knew them already, etc. Whatever he does at school I do at home. His teacher evaluated him at the end of last year and she said he was fully read for kindergarten(according to the private school we are sending him to) between school and my husband and I working with him at home. But he can't go till he is 5. They also still continue to help follow a routine, sit quietly, wait turns, share, etc. All very important when starting kinder.
Needless to say it is so much MORE than socializing.
