Is Your Child Ready For Kindergarten? 2021-22 School Year

Here are some tips for parents to help their child get ready for their Kindergarten year at Bartlett Elementary:

This Summer:
1.Write their name with clear handwriting (first letter capitalized and rest lower-case).
2. Letter Recognition – Know both the upper and lower case letters of the alphabet. Quiz with flashcards.
3. Number recognition – Recognize the numbers 0-10 in random order and be able to count to 30.
4. Foster Independence – Please have students practice opening their snack and lunch items, tying shoes, and using belts, zippers, and buttons.
5. Practice opening and closing car doors and buckling and unbuckling seatbelts independently. This makes arrival and dismissal run smooth and we have less tears.

Here are some tips for helping your child excel as a student in Kindergarten:

During the School Year:
1. Sight words - Students need to read the assigned sight words as we introduce them throughout the year. Practice with them regularly.
2. Counting to 100 - Students need to be able to count to 100 by 1’s, 10’s and 5’s. Practice with them regularly.
3. Reading - Work with them on their letter sounds and blending those sounds together to read words. Find time to let them read to you nightly.
