May brings many things, sunshine, flowers, singing birds but one important thing it brings for parents of five year olds (or almost five year olds) is Kindergarten Round Up. The time of year when you register your child for Kindergarten. It’s an exciting and kind of scare thing for parents and kids a like. My youngest is currently in kindergarten so I know how it feels walking into that office to sign them up.
As a parent you want your child to have the best experience on the first day of school and throughout the school year. To help you prepare I have written the guide Preparing Your Child for Kindergarten. Below is a short description of what you’ll find.
What can I do to prepare my child for kindergarten? Every parent asks themselves this question when the reality of kindergarten is approaching. In kindergarten your child will develop skills in many areas. You can help them prepare for this new adventure in learning using the activities and tips in this book.
Going through this book you’ll find that you may be doing many of these activities with your child already. Go through the activities and select a few new ones to introduce to your child. You’ll want to place emphasis on trying a new activity and not mastering the skill. By reinforcing that you can learn by playing, you’ll show your child how fun learning really is.
This book is broken down into eight subjects. In each subject there are activities and ideas to give your child a head start on kindergarten. I’ve collected this information through personal experience preparing two children for kindergarten.
