That's WAY more than my district expects. Here's their list...

-know & recognize the alphabet
-know the basic letter sounds
-know & count to 10
-write own name, first & last
-be able to tie their shoes

a couple more items, but that's about it. I find it too simple for kindergarten. M is finishing kindergarten and is only one of a couple kids reading at a second grade level. They spent most of the year going over phonetic sounds of all 26 letters. A bit slow paced for M. Also they had to count to 110 by 1's, 2's, 5's, and 10's. They've done addition and subtraction, simple geometry, fractions, telling time, etc. Stuff we did in first grade.

And honestly, if my district had your district's requirements for kindergarten, I wouldn't even be considering sending K to kindergarten in the fall.
