For those of you who have children in kinder or older, what skills did your child have when entering school?
Our plan was to homeschool for preschool, and I had a curriculum that I was following and supplementing. Then, we put our house up for sale, which meant leaving the house at random times all throughout the week, and me working to keep it spotless for over 6 months. Now we are in the process of getting it together to pack. Had I known how this year was going to be, we would have sent him. So now I worry that he will be lacking skills. We have 2 months to work on things before kindergarten.
My son loves workbooks, so while we wait for DS2's swim lessons, he works in them. My friend who has a daughter in kinder says she is doing the same type of work, and her daughter is excelling in kinder. That made me feel better, but then I had someone tell me that they are now teaching in pre-k what used to be taught in first grade? I can't imagine that is right, soI would love to hear others' experiences with what their child knew before starting kindergarten, and the types of things they were taught.
