Must be aware of their Phonics, and numbers, know the days in a week and months in a year, write and spell their names, form simple sentences, aware of their surroundings, able to engage in conversations etc. Do know it's OK if some kids take longer time to grasp certain I formation... Just encourage them and guide them along. Have fun :)
