Hard to be a teacher of a teacher's kid....

Teeny Tiny!!!! You are so right on.

Worrying about dd's abilities "going to waste" at the tender age of five is a bit excessive. Kindergarten is very much about socialization, no matter what is stuffed into the CCSS. Why are we, as a society, pushing young children to be "challenged"? Please let your dd's K teacher do her job. Pushing dd ahead in curriculum will not result in long term learning gains anyway. Allow her to be five and explore the world with her classmates.
