I'm new to this as well but can I ask the teachers a question - DS had his interview for his school last week ( to start kindy next year , he's 5 in October) and they tested him!
We had no idea what to expect at the interview but she asked him to identify letters, count, colours, shapes, showed him pictures, asked him to count blocks and name body parts - they said it was to see if he was ready for school and she said he got all but 1 question wrong - is that test a standard school readiness test?
Normal for catholic/private schools but no expectation in nsw public schools and they do best start assessment at beginning of kindergarten
I refuse to teach sight words etc in my Kindy class. I do each them about phonics through everyday conversations and letters through everyday things that they might encounter but ONLY if they are interested in it. My previous Kindy kids are now doing great at school.
