My son is 5 he will be 6 in November. However, he is starting 1st grade next week. He only knows a few sight words and is just learning to read. I wanted him to go to kindergarten but his school said based on his birth year he must go to first grade unless they find any delays. I just don't want him to lose his self esteem if he doesn't do well. Any advice?

Would not be a big deal in my city. Some kids are reading by the end of K, but lots aren't. My daughter had a vision problem that was not detected until partway through 1st, and she did not start reading toward the end of 1st. She's in 3rd and reads all the time now.
