It is our job to show parents why rhyming, clapping, and making patterns is reading readiness in preschool. It’s our job to convince them that offering watered-down first-grade curricula to four-year-olds is about as helpful as providing dentures to a gummy, grinning ten-month-old who is late in teething. We don’t offer remedial teething classes to children whose mouths blossom later than others. We’d laugh at the ridiculousness of the notion. Remedial reading for children who are not ready to read is just as ludicrous.
