Ready for kindergarten? What Kids Need to Succeed!
It is a great idea to think about the readiness skills young learners will need to succeed in school. Teaching academics before Kindergarten is not always advisable and is not always helpful for students who need foundation skills that will allow them to do well in the school setting. We will review some of the developmental prerequisites for school success and how you can build these into your child’s day. We will also review the development of pencil grasp and cutting skills and how to facilitate these areas. Red Flags might alert you that there are issues in development that need to be supported. We will discuss these red flags as well as what strategies might be helpful.
