Getting Your Child Ready for Kindergarten

  • Talk to your child, have him or her share ideas. Ask questions that require a detailed response.
  • Sing songs and nursery rhymes. Help your child make new words to familiar tunes.
  • Read daily to your child. Talk about the book. Ask questions about his or her favorite part or what the book is about.
  • Visit your local library. Help your child check out a variety of books and join in story hour.
  • Do puzzles and play games together.
  • Count everyday objects—household items, driving in the car, steps it takes to get down the stairs.
  • Help your child socialize. If your child is not currently in a preschool program, look into group sports, play dates, even a trip t the playground.
  • Visit the classroom before school starts with your child. The teachers are at Ralph Moody bout a week before school starts. Come by and say hello!
  • Have your child practice tying shoes, zipping and putting on coats.
  • Role play with your child, pretend to be the teacher. Have your child ask questions and share excitement or fears.
  • Buy school supplies together.  Make sure your child helps pick out the supplies.
  • Have your child practice cutting. Use old newspapers or magazines.
  • Use flash cards to familiarize your child with the alphabet.
