Parent Blog

The school year will be here before you know it, which can be stressful to some parents with children heading off to kindergarten. We have compiled some items to work on with your child to best prepare them for the big transition.

 

Read

  • Reading is such an important skill for succeeding in school, and sight words are important in kindergarten
  • Let your child pick out books from the library
  • Make evening story time a part of your child’s nightly routine
Fine Motor Skills
  • Playing with play-doh is a great way to strengthen little hands, which comes in handy since your child will be doing more writing in kindergarten
  • Work on cutting skills by cutting the play-doh with scissors
Social
  • Practice saying family names as well as your child’s birthdate
  • Promote self-help skills, like putting on shoes and jackets correctly and independently
Cognitive
  • Have your child help with chores that involve sorting items, then practice counting those items
  • Take your child shopping with you and let them help by finding things on the shelves.  This will help with following simple directions
