Tips for Kindergarten Readiness
Please remember to use your list of the sight words throughout the summer. (Click "Site Words" below for a printable list of words.) It is recommended that kids know how to read these when entering kindergarten. You can cut these apart and make flash cards for your child to practice. These were suggestions from Kindergarten teachers at a Pre-K Articulation class. They are also things that your child should be working on in preschool.
