Kindergartners’ Skills at School Entry: An Analysis of the ECLS-K 

Although most American children receive some pre-K child care and education, kindergarten still represents many children’s first exposure to formal schooling. Kindergarten supports children’s cognitive, social, and emotional skills, leading to rapid gains in knowledge during this first year of education. 
However, not all children enter kindergarten equally prepared to meet the challenges ahead of them. Researchers have found stark differences in kindergartners’ language, literacy, and math abilities as well as their social skills and behavioral approaches to learning. These areas are interdependent, and children who start kindergarten behind in math, reading, and attention-related skills risk being unable to catch up to their peers later on.

I totally have a type.

Sarcastic and aggressively underachieving.

High strung, witty nerds

4 yr olds. The ones that don’t throw tantrums every day.

9 year olds, the kind that get my Beyonce references and give me hugs.

Five year olds who are eager to learn and have something (usually funny) to say about everything.

Nailed it.

Nailed it.

State school board sidelines Ritz : Elections

Let’s just undermine the woman that the PEOPLE VOTED IN by taking her power away. She was voted in to make change and the board of ed has just taken away her ability to push for change. Indiana moves 2 steps forward and 6 steps back.
