Author's Note: 5 Ways You Can Help Your Child Succeed in First Grade
Writing about any topic related to child development can be tricky. The tremendous range in timing between children can make a discussion of age-based skills less concrete than many parents might hope for -- even the age range of first graders can vary by as much as two years. When the goal, though, is to provide insight, you don't want to hedge and haw. In lieu, then, of posting a disclaimer on each page, my hope is that parents will approach any skill-to-age correlations in this article as flexible. What one child masters in first grade, another might learn in kindergarten or second grade.
