When I am…5
Five-year-olds are very coordinated and have lots of energy. Their fine motor skills are rapidly developing and they can now button their own coats and write letters and numbers. Five-year-olds are beginning to learn to read and to recognize symbols. They are actively solving problems and trying to figure out how the world works.
Five-year-olds are still developing socially and are learning how to share with others. They are beginning to understand the difference between today, yesterday, and tomorrow and are putting stories into sequences with a beginning, middle, and end. They often use art and music to tell a story or express and idea.
