So I was at the Parent Teacher store.....
and there was a kindergarten teacher there shopping for some new classroom stuff, DD will be starting kinder this fall and i think she could tell so we got to talking..
She said that the only thing a kinder teacher really cares about when a kid is coming to school for the first time is that they know:
Counts to 10
and can spell their name...
she said that knowing those things, especially the name, would make the teacher sooo happy..
So DD can do all of that, even count to 20......but she can't spell her name, we're working on it, and she directed us to the paper with the wide lines that she uses in her classroom so we can practice.
But if you're kid is either in kinder or already done with kinder, DID THEY KNOW THAT?? did they go in under prepared, perfectly prepared, or even over prepared???
and how did they do in kinder...???
