Beginning school is one of the most important transitions in a life of a child. It is incredibly important for parents to ease the anxious feelings and enhance the positive feelings about going to school. It is our job as parents to try to foster physical, emotional and mental kindergarten readiness.

Physical kindergarten readiness is one aspect that not many parents consider. Fine motor skills are extremely valuable. Children ought to be able to hold and manipulate a pencil, marker, or crayon. Kindergarten readiness also includes gross motor skills such as running, climbing and jumping. Although all skills are improved upon during the school year, it is a good idea to have your children beginning to practice these skills before school starts.

Emotional kindergarten readiness includes knowledge of how to act in social situations. One of the many books that is great for teaching children how to act toward each other is The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister.

Before starting school students would hopefully find enjoyment in reading or listening to books and nursery rhymes. Reading educational books to your child everyday is great preparation for kindergarten too. It is a funny, classic story that most all children enjoy, and it will expose your child to rhyming. Other great books include Mother Goose collections and any book from the Dr. Seuss series.

There are hundreds of books that help teach counting as well. Preparing for kindergarten science consists of developing a familiarity with plants, animals, weather and seasons and some characteristics of each. It is beneficial for parents to be aware of what their children are going to learn in school so that they can introduce lessons to help lessen the stress of learning brand new things. Parents are the first and best teachers children have. If we are able to instill physical, emotional and mental kindergarten readiness in our children, we can facilitate their academic growth and hopefully instill a love of learning.
