Todd’s Note – If you haven’t been in a Kindergarten classroom in a while, you might have the wrong impression about what they actually do! If you are going on memory, you are probably thinking about extended play time, naps and learning how to share. That is all done, well not the naps, but that doesn’t even touch the tip of the iceberg! Students in Kindergarten are reading books by mid-semester! Yes…you read that correctly!
I know at my school, the Kindergarten teachers work miracles. They start off the year looking like they are herding cats to turning out students who are sounding out words, spelling words and reading books. Now like I said, these teachers work miracles, but things go a lot smoother if parents do a little bit of work with their children before they start their first day. This article provides a little insight for parents who will be sending their child to Kindergarten in the Fall. Start now!
When it’s time to get your child ready for kindergarten, there are some basic things you’ll need to work on in order to ensure that she’s ready for the transition. Most preschools will get your child well prepared in advance, but you may still want to ensure that she’s mastered these skills before enrolling her in kindergarten just so that all of the requisite bases are covered and that your child is well equipped for a great start.
