    year olds filling out worksheets and completing drills on letter and number recognition (Tough, 2013, p.xiii). I did notice when my son went to transitional kindergarten that what was expected from him was what a kindergarten back then would be learning. When he went to kindergarten he was expected to know more than what I remember was required before. Many things have changed since I was little, but I do agree that many children going into kindergarten did not know anything when they started kindergarten. Many parent’s that I have spoke with said that, that was the reason why their child went into kindergarten so that they could learn things and be ready for first grade.

    education. Ohio must require an all-day kindergarten program for all public elementary schools amongst Ohio. All-day kindergarten should be a public policy solution because kids in all-day kindergarten receive long-term academic benefits, and it allows children to advance themselves in both math and reading. The government must take action because allowing students to learn and study math and reading at an earlier age can help with a district’s performance. Public school districts (often urban…

I quickly noticed through observation that a very important characteristic to understand with these children is their maturity level. I found it the most helpful to observe students with how they work and interact with others. I believe the best way to teach is to understand who your students are. This means getting to know them on a personal level; learning about their families,…
