I have two girls I am homeschooling. My 4 year old is really struggling with writing and she turns 5 in July, so I am thinking
I will just do prek with her and not start actual kindergarten. I also have a 6 year old (turned 6 in January) and though we were supposed to do kindergarten this 2011-2012 year, we got little done as we had so much happen in our family this past year it was insane. I believe in my state you don't actually have to start reporting anything until 7 years of age, but I am afraid to stray from the traditional age/grade pairing.How would it affect my kids in the long run? If I do kindergarten over with my 6 year old and wait until my 4 year old is 6 to start her with kindergarten ( I think she is really not ready, she can barely sit still or focus and just wants to play) will it make a terrible difference? Should I just go on to first grade with my 6 year old and start kindergarten "on time" for my soon to be 5 year old in September? Also, any tips for getting my 4 yr old to write without a crying fit??
