Getting Ready For Kindergarten. The list below shows some of the skills that kindergarteners will be developing over the year. In many cases, this means not only a classroom.
This makes it an ideal video for ESL instruction as well as kindergarten readiness. Going to kindergarten is a big step for kids, which is why preparation is key. You can help by practicing some of these together ahead of time!
Model a positive attitude about both starting kindergarten and learning in general.
My number one concern about preschool is the social aspect.
Just so that we are clear… If your child cannot do everything on this list, it does not mean that he/she is not ready for kindergarten! From making sure appropriate documentation is gathered, to playing and reading with and listening to their child, the year before Kindergarten is a great opportunity to develop school readiness! Being ready for kindergarten means having well-developed preschool skills, and being academically, socially, and physically ready for the transition.
