Her percentile is high and she knows all about the cube and rhombus
She should better get ready in uniform and tie to board the school bus
Her cram sessions are thorough and she knows even sphere and trapezoid
She now sits confidently with her i-pod and smart phones on android
And feels on top of the world with an assured place in the kindergarten
With so much cram ,she will have no admissions problems to dishearten.
She didn’t swig Red Bull from a sippy cup to pull all-nighters, but Taylor Dior started cramming at age 3 for what some New Yorkers think is the most important test of her life — getting into kindergarten.
Her mom, Chavon Peele, paid up to $79 a month to a private service for access to 1,000 sample questions that she says gave Taylor the skills needed to ace the city’s Gifted and Talented test.
They worked together 45 minutes most nights so that tiny Taylor, soon after turning 4, could discern patterns, do analogies, understand concepts such as “greater than,” and recognize a rhombus, among other tough tasks.
