One more thing about kindergartners .... if you want to know what is
developmentally appropriate (DAP) for early childhood education, and that
includes kindergarten (they are not small first graders :o) ), check out
the NAEYC website... National Association for the Education of Young
Children. They have links to DAP practices. I have printed out a few of
the articles I could find on DAP below, if you care to take a look.
