My big 5 yo starts prep next year. Are there things she really should know??
I THINK she is going to be fine but are there things she really should know?
She can toilet herself / wash hands etc, she is pretty good with opening bags, and lunch boxes etc.
And please dont tell me she is meant to know how to read? Someone mentioned this the other day and i nearly died. She knows her letters and she knows some words start with certain letters etc and she can write her name. Surely thats all she needs to know?? She can write the alphabet - gets some back to front like an E is a 3 but i thought that would be plenty - surely the prep teacher will be teaching her to read and write????
Any other tips / hints etc etc.
Im very excited for her and a bit nervous (not showing her though!)
