Seriously..Kindergarten seems a lot harder these days then it did when I was a kid!!
When I was a kid I did not have to know how to read when I passed Kindergarten. I remember learning in the 1st grade. (Hooked on phonics worked for me!! lol)
I remember I had to know my colors, had to know how to count to X amount, had to know my address, phone number, etc. And I had to know shapes, and what some things were, like pencils, balloons, etc.
My friend's son is in Kinder, and she showed me the list of the words he has to know how to write. Some of them were words I did not even learn till 2nd grade!! And he has to know how to WRITE them, and spell them, to pass.
He also had to know how to count to 100, and a bunch of other things I KNOW I did not know when I passed Kinder!!
I'm scared for when my son goes..it seems like stuff I did not learn till 2nd grade, they are making kids have to know just when they pass Kindergarten!!
