Help! Preparing for 1St Grade

Hi Moms- I am wondering if any of you can share with me some of the things that your child learned in 1st Grade. My son has been recently recommended to skip Kindergarten and go on to 1st Grade. I would like to prepare him, at home, for what is to come. While I believe that this is the best decision for him, I would like to continue to work with him on the things that he may need. Thanks, in advance, for your help! N.

WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE HIM HAPPY ABOUT STAYING ANOTHER YEAR IN SECOND GRADE?? (By the way, he doesn't want to move to another school).
