DD is 3.5
She writes her name and can write _most_ letters with out a model to copy. It is still big and chunky but she remembers the shape on her own.
She knows all of her letters and letter sounds and is beginning to sound our short words as well as quickly learning our states Kindergarten sight word list. I really feel she will be reading step 1 books in her own in the next few months
She can copy and predict simple patterns (3-5 steps) and is starting to add and subtract single digits. usually without manipulative.
She has a spoken vocabulary that rivals my 7 year olds and knows how to use it.
Her reading comprehension is on target with my son who is in second grade (but reading at 1st grade level) She can retell a story and she can predict endings as well as make self to text comparisons.
I have been teaching her hat home and she is to young for pre-k this year. If I keep working with her is she going to be WAY ahead of her class and be bored?

sounds like my dd! lol yet my dd gets frustrated easily and we have a hard time practicing...... yes she is smarter than a normal 3 year old but she shouldn't get bored and if the school thinks she is to smart they will put her in gifted classes gl!
