When my first son was approaching Kindergarten, I emailed the Director of Elementary Education in our school district to ask about Kindergarten assessments. We were doing a lot of preschool activities at home together, but I wanted to make sure that I was on the track with what I was teaching him!
She was so sweet & emailed me back within the hour! She gave me an overview of what they would assess for Kindergarten readiness:
- letter identification
- first sound identification
- number identification (in order & out of sequence)
- shape identification
- fine motor skills (writing his name)
- social interation
- listening to a story
In addition to this info, & expressing excitement over us being a part of the district, she also attached a wonderful Kindergarten Readiness Checklist from United Way!
