Thank you to My Cute Graphics for the use of the superhero kids graphic.
Families are their children's first teacher. You play such an important role in both their school readiness and their overall academic success. Getting your child(ren) ready for school doesn't have to involve endless hours of drill type activities. It can be playful, informal and fun. When children are having fun, in a comfortable and engaging way - learning occurs naturally. Though your child will have a year of amazing growth and learning in Kindergarten, it is ideal to provide them with both the tools and the necessary foundation they will need to be successful.
This summer, I am being joined by Toddler Approved, Coffee Cups and Crayons, Mess for Less, Rainy Day Mum and Mama Smiles to bring you hands-on, playful ways to get your child(ren) ready for kindergarten through our Get Ready for K Through Play series. Our aim is to provide you with easy, fun and engaging activities that you can add to your summer days with minimal fuss and prep. We want this to be doable and stress free for you and your child so we are doing all the planning and sharing our ideas and activities with you.
Over the course of the next 8 weeks we will each be sharing fun ideas on our 5 blogs aimed at helping children develop:
Week 1 - Language
Week 2 - Social & Emotional Skills
Week 3 - Independence Skills
Week 4 - Math Concepts
Week 5 - Books, Reading & Literacy
Week 6 - Fine Motor & Writing Skills
Week 7 - Alphabet & Phonics
Week 8 - Ready to Learn Skills
We invite you to join us each Wednesday from June 12th thru July 31st as we help you Get Your Child Ready for K Through Play! Each of our five (5) blogs will be offering playful learning ideas and activities on the week's topic. Plus, we are excited to bring you even more ideas on our Get Ready for K Through Play Pinterest Board.
I hope you will find this series to be a wonderful resource for you and your child as you get ready for Kindergarten.
