By the age of 6, children learn to take on new roles and responsibilities and are able to complete tasks with guidance from adults. They understand the feelings of others, and may present themselves as “little adults” and enjoy helping to care for the younger children.
They become independent readers and are able to enunciate words with fluency and clarity. They can count up to 100 and backwards, and understand numerical concepts like odd and even. They are also able to read and tell time.
They develop physically to have better control of their motor skills. They can catch a ball with both hands and ride a bicycle. They get better at tying and untying their shoelaces and are also able to complete more intricate and complex jigsaw puzzles.
