So my son is starting K this year(hes my first). He will be on the older end as he missed he cut off last year. He did some preschool last year because the daycare where we moved to offered it, he was in for about 6 months. During that time he did awesome and his "end of year" review showed him on target with the others.
My concern is the more I read and hear about K is that they are expecting a lot more than what I though.
He can write his first name ok(its a little big lol) and can write all letters but some he needs help remembering on. He can tell them all by sight and can say the alphabet. He can spell No and Yes. He knows all the sounds and has been sounding short words out. He knows all shapes and colors. He can count to 100. He can kind of do some simple addition and subtraction with manipulatives. He can tell time for the most part on a digital watch and understands am and pm.
Hes good with the "process" of school from going to preschool, his teacher marked him pretty high on that, hes good at raising his hand, getting in line, waiting his turn and adds to discussion. He has trouble with talking to his friends though lol, hes EXTREMELY chatty and has a lot of ideas and a vivid imagination.
So I have until August to fill in any areas that he may need bumped up with, I really dont want him to start behind, Im ok with "on par" but I want him to at least be on par. Any advice would be awesome!
