Yesterday afternoon I took Emma to the elementary school for their annual preschool screening. They give her a bunch of standardized tests to see how she's doing developmentally. To her the tests seem like games. She had a great time. When she finished one station she wanted to know when she could go to the next one. They did things like jumping, catching, cutting with scissors, stacking, copying, counting numbers, recognizing letters, identifying colors, naming household objects, problems solving, hearing tests and many other things. An example of her problem solving prowess...
"What do you do when you go into a dark room?"
"Go to sleep"
"What do you do when you break something that doesn't belong to you?"
"What is your phone number?"
40,000 and eight.
OK, so some stuff they asked her we haven't even tried to teach yet. But she knows her full name and where she lives. I think that's enough for now.
Overall I was pleased with her results. We'll be back for another round next year.
