Re: Have to be able to read to get into Kindergarten?

^yeah that. My son wanted nothing to do with letters and sounds. He didnt know any at the start of kindy. He was however very interested in science and math so we worked on that stuff. Seriously I don't understand the big push on letters and stuff on kids so early. The world isn't going to stop moving because a kid doesn't know the sound of the letter p at 4 years old. The ones that learn reading later are usually caught up just fine at the end of kindy. IMHO I would rather see them enjoy toddlerhood rather then learning how to write their name. Now if a kid loves doing that kind of stuff that is an entirely different topic but Ive seen lots of parents push their toddlers too much.
