Preparing yourself and your child for kindergarten

Spring is around the corner (hopefully), then summer, and before you know it, it will be back to school. It will come fast and if this is the year your son/daughter is starting kindergarten, there are things you can do now to prepare both of you for the big changes to come.

On Wednesday, March 17th, 2010, the Fayette County public schools will be hosting an information session about registering your child for kindergarten, including the steps you can make to help the transition be as smooth as possible. Whitney  Stevenson will be holding the meeting  between 7 and 8 PM at the Beaumont Public Library in Lexington. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 859-231-5570.

If you haven't already started, try these quick and easy ideas that will make a big difference come August:

-Begin a routine; wake up and eat around the same times, then (for example) go on an outing in the morning, read a book after lunch then do a craft, etc.

-Host/attend play dates; by playing with kids of the same age, children learn/teach each other how to share, play cooperatively, solve problems and explore

-Include books, numbers, letters, exercises and art activities in their daily routine

For more information and ideas, Ready Set Go is a site where "you'll find everything you need to help children and families transition to kindergarten!"
