My 5 year old son will be starting prep next year and he still cannot write his name (or anything) he can write a few letters and that's it. My girls could at least write their names before starting. He can count to 100 (though gets muddled up), can recognise his name if he sees it, knows colour, shapes etc. he can get himself dressed and all that. I'm worried if his new teacher will get the class to write things and he won't be able to
It seems he wants to learn but gives up to easily if he can't do it. So what things are expected? He isn't in daycare yet but I am going to be putting him into one two days a week from next week up until school ( more to socialize)..
