In Kindergarten, children learn many other important skills in addition to learning how to read. Your daughter will learn basic math skills like counting, pattern and shape recognition and simple addition and subtraction. She will have the opportunity to practice important social and emotional skills like turn taking, sharing and making friends. Kindergarten also teaches children how to listen, observe, share opinions and follow directions. She will work on her fine and gross motor skills and be introduced to the process of scientific inquiry. Throughout the day she will also be engaged in a number of music, art, literature and play activities. So while she may be ahead of the curve when it comes to reading, there are plenty of other activities that should keep her interested.
