This is a private preschool that he goes to. He went last year to three year old preschool and the second week home I got a note that we needed to work on handwriting. Well, come to find out they were pushing him to write with his right hand when he's a definite lefty!!
So, he knows all his upper and lower case letters, can count to 20 (skips 17 occasionally), knows his colors, he knows alot of sight words like dog, dad, mom, cat, ball, etc. He knows most of the sounds of letters. He takes speach therapy because he can't say his F's correctly. I am just a bit overwelmed by everything. And like someone else said - this is only a small percentage of the kids who will be in his kindergarten class and I do fear that they are pushing these kids too much and they will end up being bored and causing trouble or be burnt out in kindergarten. I thought the point of preschool was to start teaching them how to be a student and interact with others. I remember learning my colors and playing in preschool but that was 20 years ago.
Thanks for all the comments. It does make me feel better to know that this is not what always happens in preschool. This is a small town and we don't have alot of options and my son definetly needs to be out with kids during the day so I really don't want to pull him out.
