Right! Common core was designed to make kids go apeshit.
In kindetgarten, when i finish my other daughter's lessons.. i have to check off these boxes that say "my student can air write the letter k" - meaning, she can draw a K with her finger in the air.
WTF? I don't put her through that humilliation.. i just make her fill up a space on a piece of paper with letters.. all of which she knew how to identify and write before starting kindergarten. She learned it from watching her sister and brothers. She would ask me how to spell something like 'my little pony" so she could search it on youtube herself.
Most kids start writing around age 3-4 and sing their ABCs with big bird when they learn to talk.
