Now it is time for your child to attend Kindergarten, what is your next step? Starting kindergarten is a new adventure, it is part of growing up! You can help prepare your child and yourself to make the move to kindergarten a smooth one. Being a kindergartner means that there are changes to their daily routine. It is important to set up a new routine prior to school beginning and to begin to build new relationships with other children, their teachers and parents.
Many of your children will be excited! They have heard about attending school from their siblings or neighbors. It is important for your child to get off to a good beginning! Help you child build their confidence because it is natural for them to have concerns about the change in their daily routine. Discuss the activities and fun they will have at school and give him or her a chance to talk about their feelings. Your conversations with your kindergartner will help both of you feel more at ease regarding their move to school.
How can you describe kindergarten to your child? Your new kindergartner will have the opportunity to experience music, art, physical education and technology class in addition to their normal school day. They will get to use the school library, eat in the cafeteria and ride the school bus. Your child will participate in recess on the elementary playground and have fun playing with their friends.
Your child will be in a class with other children and they will have the opportunity to develop independent work habits, learn to participate in group work, move to various learning stations and make new friends. Your kindergartner will have the opportunity to be part of a classroom with a daily routine. They will experience math, science, reading and writing activities in their classroom.
