Preparing Your Child For School

Continuing my series
Preparing Your Child For School, I wanted to offer suggestions for skills children should have before entering First Grade.

Language Arts/Reading
Knows all letter names and letter sounds.
Writes first and last name.
Shows beginning writing skills using pictures, letters and/or words.
Recognizes and produces simple rhyming pairs.
Recognizes sight words from the dolce list.

Identifies and draws basic shapes
Identifies coins.
Tell time on clocks to the hour.
Identifies the days of the weeks and months of the year.
Identifies and writes numerals 1-10.
Counts forward to 20 and backward to 10.

As always, read with your child often!

This is a series of posts.
