Message length 300 characters recommended

Five year olds are generally very social! They are beginning to really crave independence and want to do things like choose their own clothing and bathe on their own. They like to sing, dance and act while having a captive audience. They will probably become little comedians as well, telling you knock knock jokes.

They begin to read, print and count well above 50. They also enjoy learning about shapes!

This is a great age and such a fast moving developmental stage in a child's life!
