A is in 4k and will be entering kindergarten in fall. So we got a list of "expected knowledge" for the start of the year.
It is RIDICULOUS!!
It includes: know grade level high frequency words (there's a list of about 25), recognize and identity basic punctuation, use phonetic awareness to spell, write simple sentences, know and write their full name, address, phone number, tell time to the hour, interpret simple graphs, understand calender concepts......the list goes on.
Is it just me or are things getting nuts? These kids are only 5!
I'm just shocked with this list.
