Yeah, I shot for a level a little higher than what they wrote. My dd was ready for it so we went further. I'd recommend near the end of K after mastering short vowel to introduce long vowel. Use Bob books K and introduce their 1st grade level. If done in a fun way, it's a really easy transition for them, making the first grade curriculum easier. We reviewed the 100 chart quite a bit in the last half of K. We spent two weeks just filling a blank one in slowly. Basically, I did find going further than their list helped us prepare for 1st grade and that my dd was comfortably ready to go
further than their recommendations.

Re: Thoughts on this kindergarten checklist??

a lot of that is covered in the 3 yr old and into the 4yr old curriculum i use at work (at a daycare), and ds is in public pre-k this year, and their assessments go higher than that too. the math seems especially weak

Here are the lists in their original home... on the WorldBook site: http://worldbook.com/typical-course-of-study

Another guide I really like to build my own in the Core Knowledge Sequence.. you can download it for free http://www.coreknowledge.org/download-the-sequence (just under "download sequence" headline there are 2 links, one for preschool and one for k-8) The newer version of the What Your x Grader Needs to Know books follow this sequence and are a good starting point if you go that direction.
Finally got a chance to review that link! I'll definitely be printing it out. It definitely looks helpful!
