Well Leona finished up her first year of school and will be going on to first grade next September. I'm very proud of her. She did a great job in school this year and she loves it. She finished with a lot of exceeds expectations levels in many of her subjects.
Honestly I'm amazed at what they teach children in kindergarten now days. I think when we were kids we majored in coloring and eating paste. Leona finished kindergarten knowing how to read and write. They hope by the end og kindergarten to have kids look at a picture and write two or three sentences. Leona will write four or five.
When it comes to math again I'm impressed she can count to 100 by ones, two's fives, and tens. She can count backwards from 30 and she can do some basic addition and subtraction. I was told that they are teaching first grade level at kindergarten now.
