For first grade enrollment, California law requires a child to be six years old on or before September 1 for the 2014-15 school year and each school year thereafter to be legally eligible for first grade (EC Section 48010).

Districts must admit children at the beginning of the school year (or whenever they move into a district) if they will be five years of age on or before September 1 (EC Section 48000[a]). Children who are age-eligible for kindergarten may attend any pre-kindergarten summer program maintained by the school district.
3 months - 2 years is an infant - when a child learns to walk they are often called a toddler, 3 – 5 years is a preschooler or a young child, 5 - 12 years can be called a school age child, 5 - 14 years is a child - but 10 to 13 years can be called a preteen.
Behavior. Your 5-year-old is comfortable with a little more independence, which means she enjoys being around other family members and friends more. Your child is all about testing boundaries and might even demand to do things on her own.
1 to 2-year-olds need 11-12.5 hours of sleep per night. 3 to 5-year-olds need 10.5-11.5 hours. 6 to 7-year-olds need about 10.5 hours. 7 to 13-year-olds need about 10 hours.
Children who are 5-6 years of age are counting to 30 and able to represent numbers to 20. This means that they can link the number of objects to the numeral. Children are grouping objects into sets and learning to count by ones to determine the size of each set.
A 5 year old should be able to read a few sight words as well. Usually, kids learn common words like the, come, some, many, from, of, where, were…etc. before learning lesser common sight words like build, beautiful, group, thought… etc.
Most 5-year-olds can recognize numbers up to ten and write them. Older 5-year-olds may be able to count to 100 and read numbers up to 20. A 5-year-old's knowledge of relative quantities is also advancing. If you ask whether six is more or less than three, your child will probably know the answer.
In a recent study described in the journal Developmental Science, lead author and postdoctoral fellow Melissa Kibbe and Lisa Feigenson, associate professor of psychological and brain sciences at Johns Hopkins University's Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, found that most preschoolers and kindergartners—children ...
Correctly name at least four colors and three shapes. Recognize some letters and possibly write their name. Better understand the concept of time and the order of daily activities, like breakfast in the morning, lunch in the afternoon, and dinner at night. Use future tense, such as, “We will go to the park soon.”
Algebra is the culmination of most elementary & middle school math programs. Typically, algebra is taught to strong math students in 8th grade and to mainstream math students in 9th grade.
Elephant Learning Math Academy is an automated math academy for children ages 2-16. On average children within our system learn 1.5 years of math in 3 months.
Once our system gets them the understanding and intuition, the memorization now becomes useful. We have students as old as 12 or 13, coming in tested at the 2nd or 3rd grade levels outside of our system, catch up to their grade level within 6 months.
Elephant Learning teaches mathematics conceptually. ... Our reports provide parents and teachers with individualized reports that allow them to understand exactly what each child understands. Using that knowledge, we can identify and fill gaps quickly.
The price is definitely worth it as before they refused to learn math and now they are eager to use the app. Both have improved greatly in the month that we have used it. My 4 year old went from a 3.0 "Elephant Age" to a 4.6 "Elephant Age" and my 5.5 Year old went from a 4.0 to a 5.2.
Our system is not Common Core. Common Core is an academic standard. We are compatible in that we teach mathematics conceptually, which is what Common Core, as a standard, aims to accomplish.
The curriculum covers from counting to fractions, decimals, and percentages. We recently added algebra to our curriculum, and we plan to continue through calculus so that we may remediate children at the university level. If your child is working on any of those concepts, this system will work for your child.
