Kindergarten or first grade?
My daughter has a May birthday and this past year we sent her to Kindergarten but ended up pulling her because it seemed to be too much for her (socially/emotionally) at the time. I homeschooled her this year instead. While she’s been very interested in science, social studies, reading (I should say, being read TO), she still struggles with writing and reading on her own. Now I’m faced with the dilemma of whether to send her into first grade where the other kids are reading independently, are supposed to know 90 sight words (she knows roughly 40), and can write a full paragraph. (All of that is per several 1st grade teachers I’ve talked to about what they need to know coming in.) Any advice? What would you do? Send her into kindergarten or first grade?
