We took her tonight for her Kindergarten competency testing.
She has been going to Pre-K and the teacher always compliments how smart she is, she has always been above her peers in intelligence, she is VERY smart, etc. But when they tested her she got a 65 out of a 107.
I feel like I failed her and should have been working with her more.
She can sit here and read books with me, she picks up new words and stuff extremely quick (show her once and she has it down), etc.
But she only made a 65?
So.... I refuse to fail her. I will make sure she is ready for school, if not smarter than the other children.
I have made some work sheets for her and flash cards that I will print and laminate tomorrow. We will start working tomorrow on these things more since they said she could not completely identify every letter of the alphabet and didn't know all of her numbers from 11-20.
Did I fail her since she only made a 65 out of 107?

Is this the first test she's ever taken? I really don't think you should worry about it, you haven't failed her. Does she want to go to kindergarten? She may be nervous about taking this next step. It could be so many things and the school should be willing to work with you.
Please don't go nuts drilling her. You don't want to create more anxiety if she's experiencing that already. I think Adelicious gave you great advice. Just give her some time & lots of love & reassurance. She'll be just fine.
