    10 Ways to Prepare Your Child for Kindergarten 


    1. Read books everyday.

    2. Develop fine motor skills: holding a pencil, coloring, cutting with scissors.

    3. Print first name with only the first letter capitalized.

    4. Learn to follow 2-step instructions: “Please go get your shoes and then put them on.

    5. Use good manners: “Please” and “Thank You”

    6. Talk about social skills: sharing, taking turns, positive words, talk about handling anger.

    7. Help your child take responsibility: clean up messes, dress themselves, get their own snacks.

    8. Practice Counting: Count objects daily.

    9. Practice identifying names of letters and numbers (0-10).

    10. Build self-esteem. Praise your child often because Kindergarten is hard!
