Waiting on Kindergarten?
Our just turned 5 (1st of July) girl is a sensory seeker. Her preschool teacher informed us in June she would benefit from another year of small class PreK/KinderTransition than to head to Kindergarten.
She is bright but has difficulty with leaving me, she squeezes her friends to tight, rams into kids, has difficulty transitioning from one thing to the next in class, runs and hides or cries when a teacher or us raise our voice at her.
We will be starting therapy next week but unsure about Kindergarten. Do we start her at 5 or 6? She may be more emotionally ready at 6 but bored at the level of school work (she is spelling words, reading BOB books, adding and subtracting...led by her not me pushing it on her.)Or put her in at a little over 5 and work on social and coping skills. Her public K would be less than 20 kids and half day.
Anyone have experience with this?
