Preparing for Kindergarten

What should we be doing to get ready for kindergarten?

Starting kindergarten is an exciting time for students and their families. If this is your first child to come to school, you are bound to have many questions about what you should be doing to prepare your child to start. Here are our simple suggestions to help your child have a successful transition into kindergarten.

Have your student practice:

-      Writing their name

-      Using scissors to cut paper

-      Tying their shoes (send in shoes without laces until they can do this)

-      Zipping their coats

-      Fastening and unfastening their belt

-      Counting small groups of objects

-      Taking turns or waiting for things

-      Wearing a mask without touching it or playing with it for up to 20 minutes
