Is my kindergartner really that behind?
Today I received a generic letter stating that my daughter has been recommended for 'Kindergarten Intervention' which would extend her school day to 7.5 hours because she doesn't read yet.
Prior to the start of kindergarten, the district gave all parents a "things my child should know before kindergarten" list. She met every requirement. Is my daughter really considered a remedial student because she's not reading 4 weeks into kindergarten?? It seems a bit outrageous to me as I thought that's what kindergarten is for.
I think a 7.5 hour day is entirely too long for a 5 year old. Can anyone please give advice on this? Is she really this far behind? Thanks in advance for any help.
