oh and she will turn 5 beginning of july. I chose not to hold her back another year because I don't want to chance her lacking the learning her new teacher will be teaching her. I have very little patience so I know they will do a way better job than I and if she stays behind I will have the choice to hold her back for a second year of kinder.

Roxanne, you are correct. At this moment she is behind schedule. Ive spoken to the school I am wanting to enroll her in and they have told me to start working with her little by little every day to help her and she will be fine they just advised me to keep calm if she gets frustrated and try not to over whelm her but to space it out so she has time to learn and remember without getting to confused. I think it is more just me that wants her ahead of schedule because my lack of time to spend with her to make sure she will be ok. I had trouble when I was young with all of it and the school didn't care to help me much.
Thank you though for your advice.

When does she turn 5? I definitely think she's behind schedule, but kids learn fast, so she can catch up. I know it's difficult, but you may want to wait another year before starting Kindergarten. See what the school says they expect the children to know before they start.
