Because my daughter spells her name and thats it am a curious mom.
Your daughter should love books and stories. That's the key to being a good reader, and it comes from the 'story time' you spend with her. If she begins to read as you look at books together, cool. If not, you are still setting all the foundations that the school will need to teach her to read later. The real problem comes with children in school who don't know what to do with a book, don't know how to hold it or turn the pages, and don't know how to sit still to enjoy a story. If your daughter can do all these things, you and she are doing well. If she also begins to read for herself, that's just a nice extra.
Writing her name - great! It might be a good idea to check with the school that she's going to, to see how they do their letters. Sometimes a kid can write their name in capitals and then gets all upset when the teachers write it with one capital and then lower case. So it's a good idea to check that you're teaching her what she'll experience at school.
Have fun! This is a fun age, when they begin to learn stuff...
Okay...your title and your question are two totally different things.
A four year old is not expected to read. Although some do. A lot of 5 years olds can read small words when they enter Kindergarten. They should know their colors and letters before then. It gives the teacher an easier time when they are learning to write their letters and begin reading techniques.
A head weave...I have no idea. Not my area of expertise. :)
:o Ok, you have two different questions that shouldn't be together and I learned to read when I was 3years of age I could read at least 1 page in 2 minutes or more but thats not the point. You have to decide if the time is right. okay?
I wrote my name at 3yr and I think I started to read at 4yr. in england kids start school and start learning to read/write at 4yr. it's good she can do that, don't worry!
My mom learned to read when she was four. I learned at age six. It's different for everyone.
