Tips for Parents: Give Your Early Learner a Head Start

Jul 25, 2019
 
 

A generation ago, kindergarten days were only filled with activities like finger painting, “Hide-and-Go-Seek,” making friends, and learning to be peaceful at nap time.

 

And, while reading and spelling may have been introduced in first grade, there was nothing like today’s pressure for students to be performing according to grade-level standards. Sure, there is still art, music, and games, but the specific expectations of teachers—and students—has amplified academic life all the way down to preschool.

 

You may be wondering, “Is my child ready for next year’s classroom?” Or, “Will they be able to keep up?”

 

What to Expect

Today, preschool, kindergarten and first grade classrooms offer more academics than in the past. To some degree, your child will definitely be working on:

 

✓ Letter names and sounds

✓ Sounding out for reading

✓ Sight word reading

✓ Printing letters and numbers

✓ Listening comprehension

✓ Communication skills

✓ Counting and understanding numbers

✓ Adding and subtracting

✓ Pencil and scissor work

✓ Color and shape recognition

 

Get Some Practice

Whether or not we adults feel great about the “new normal” for primary grades—now is the time to familiarize your child with the activities they will be exposed to—so they can feel great about the new year.  Try activities like reading simple books together and counting. Get started with our guide, The 3 Best Activities for Boosting Kindergarten Learning.

 

The Magic of Learning, right from the start!

Want some help giving your child a great start? Check out Kindergarten BOOST™ instruction at Lindamood-Bell, enrichment instruction offered year-round for students four to six years old. We develop the imagery-language foundation for reading, spelling, comprehension, and math. In a matter of weeks, we can help your child feel prepared and excited about their first day of school!

 

An age-appropriate learning evaluation is an integral part of all Lindamood-Bell instruction. Some students may require preliminary intervention to prepare for the Kindergarten BOOST™ format. If a child is already struggling with language and literacy skills compared to other children their age, addressing the issue early can make a difference.
