After sharing my 8-part blog series about preschool, I thought I would compile a checklist you can use to prepare your child for Kindergarten. This list of standards was put together by looking at public school, private school, and homeschool standards. I am a former fourth grade teacher and through teaching experiences with early childhood education during college, I believe this list is a good way to assess how ready your child is for kindergarten.
Print this list and check off the skills as they master them. I know this list seems huge, but just working what you can will really benefit your child. I am excited to keep using this list to build more activities to share on my blog and help you find ways to practice these skills. I hope this list will be a helpful guide, whether you homeschool or send your child to school. Either way, it is still good to know what your child should know before Kindergarten.
