That precious transition from raising a toddler to sending a child off to elementary school has several stages of development. One of the most essential periods of transition is the year of kindergarten children receive before embarking on their scholastic career.
The word “scholastic” means “concerning schools and education” and there is much to be drawn from that definition as to how you should prepare a child for kindergarten.
Getting your child ready for the school experience is just as important as teaching them to read and write. The most important thing in the Pre-K stage is to help your child gather the appropriate level of social and functional skills needed to be successful learners.
How important are academics?
Two prime fears of Pre-K parents seem to center on academics:
- Does my child need to be prepared to read and write before kindergarten?
- Will they be behind if these academic skills are not in place?
Parents should know their child can enjoy the kindergarten experience even if the child is not already reading and writing. While it certainly does not hurt to encourage a child in academic subjects like reading and math, it is just as important for parents to concentrate on generating an overall love of learning.
Learning on the go
You can find “teachable” moments where you simply explain something that your child appears eager to know. Think also about words that would be fun to teach, like names of new objects you encounter while running errands or taking a walk in the woods. Stimulating a child to learn is often as simple as responding to their natural curiosity or helping them “find the fun” in their everyday activities.
The importance of talk
Communication is vital to social health and happiness. Helping your child learn to speak or communicate as clearly as possible can help them have positive social interactions and avoid frustration that can lead to them “closing down” their learning capacity. Encouraging your child to speak clearly and to choose the correct words is one of the most important things a parent can do to prepare their child for the kindergarten environment.
Let them grow up a little
One of the important components of pre-school preparedness is helping a child establish her identity as someone who can function on her own. That means teaching them to grow up a little so that they know how to hang their coats at school, can follow instructions reasonably well, and do the basics like going to the bathroom and washing their hands on their own.
You’d be amazed how much time Pre-K and kindergarten teachers spend having to reinforce these basic manners. That’s time lost for learning, and it only takes a few children to hold up an entire class.
Getting dressed and knowing how to eat neatly are also vital kindergarten skills. Usually children don’t learn to tie their shoes until first grade. If a child is eager to tie his own shoes, it’s never too early. Velcro works wonders on kids’ shoes for those who aren’t ready to tie their own laces.
Getting along with other kids
Knowing how to share, play simple games and practice good manners during play are all key relational skills that will help children who are starting kindergarten.
Practice the little things
Holding pens and pencils. Coloring. Cutting. Pasting. All straightforward stuff, but for some kids it can be hard to teach the “little things” that mean a lot.
Kid who do not yet know how to read or do math can still learn to recognize their basic shapes, numbers, letters and patterns. There are plenty of games that involve these basics, especially simple card games like Uno.
The preschool route
For those children who do attend preschool, there are many paths to take, and several kinds of preschools to consider. There are academic preschools where reading, writing and math subjects are taught. Then there are nurturing preschools where children are taught how to socialize and perhaps absorb a few values along the way. There are also alternative preschools where the spirit of the child is encouraged with creative approaches to learning. A good parent mixes all three to get their child off to school in great shape to learn.
