After some advice please.
Ds is changing schools as we are moving States.
He will be in year 1 in 2016.
At his current school, he's learnt about 40-60 sight/camera words.
We did orientation yesterday for the new school and I found out they've learnt over 120 sight words already.
I love my current school so I'm not concerned that the school was 'incorrect' for not doing more, they have learnt science and Italian and i wish that the new school did this too.
However I'm worried about ds moving forward. The kids yesterday were doing simple sentences and I still had to spell all the words to him.
I have the list of sight words that the new school has learnt in kindy/pre primary, but there's no chance will learn more than 10 of them during the school hols.
For those who have been in similar positions or who are teachers, will he be severely disadvantaged next year?
