hi, this question is for a kindergarten teacher or for prek students parent,

my child is about to enter kindergarten in september, she goes to special needs school. , she can tell the letters if i tell the sounds but not vice versa, she knows how to write letters and numbers ... thats it she knows till now ... i am worried as to how she will cope up in kindergarten , where many kids are reading already ...writing words etc.
i have 3 kids so i dont have time to run behind her,, she dont sit with me so that i can teach her sumthing ..i am worried .. dunno wat to do ..

are there many kids like her who enters kindergarten,, do they really cover up .. thanks for all the HOPE

if she's already in a special needs school, there's not much more you can do. However, you DO need to "run behind her" as you put it. You need to "run behind" all of your kids to help them learn to be the best humans that they can be!

You need to be involved with each of them on a classroom level, and know what's going on with them. Just because one is special needs doesn't mean that you'll need to ignore the rest and totally devote your time to her, or write her off as too "difficult" in order to see to the needs of the rest of your kids. It can all be balanced. But, coming from a parent, and a past classroom aide for pre-K on up, it's better for all of your children if you are involved in their schooling.

My son wasn't writing words when he started kindergarten, and he wasn't reading either. That is what they start doing in kindergarten.

Well, it is only January. Teachers generally expect most kindergarteners to not know much, but it is nice when they do. If you can, get her into a preschool program even a couple of times per week to get her prepared. It will help.
