So I found out the following DS needs to be familiar with by K:
Visual Recognition and/or Ability to Write the following:
ABCs, Vowels, Numbers 1-20, Full Name & Phone Number, shapes & colors
Sight words & basic reading, and basic math (addition).
DS is currently working on his visual recognition of ABCs, and writing the lines necessary form words. He knows his full name and phone number, numbers 1-13, basic shapes & colors. Now once he masters his ABCs, we will be working on sight words.
Hopefully DS will be educationally ready by Kindie, but I thought we could cross-check with others here (if interested) to see where we are all at.
