Had an interview yesterday for a VPK position and the director mentioned that she expects VPK classes to be taught states and capitals. Is this age appropriate? It just seems a lot for 4 year olds and could that time be better spent with language and math and social skills? I just feel like its one of those things that is like "Oh yeah you should bring your child here because we teach them the states and capitals". Ive taught Pre-K for 7 years and I'm not even sure where I should start with this!
