How to Prepare Your Child for Senior JK

Getting ready for senior kindergarten is more than learning letters and numbers. It’s about creating a happy learning place and caring for your child’s health. Since you can’t be by their side at school, it’s important to help them be on their own. You can start by showing them how to zip up their jacket. Reading special books, like Clifford Goes to Kindergarten, can help with worries. And How Do Dinosaurs Clean Their Rooms? teaches them to be neat and responsible.

Kids might eat differently at school and sometimes not include others. It’s good to talk to the teachers about these things. Making sure your child can use the restroom alone is also very important before they start senior kindergarten.

Ask your child questions that really get them talking about their day. Rather than a simple “How was your day?”, ask about activities or friendships they made. This helps you know more about their school life and support them better.

To get ready, look into some educational materials. The My First BOB Books: Alphabet can help with learning letters. The 100 Write-and-Learn Sight Word Practice Pages is good for reading. And the Scholastic Early Learners: Pre-K Extra Big Skills Workbook: Sorting and Matching is great for learning to sort. Don’t forget math practice with the Scholastic Early Learners: Kindergarten Extra Big Skills Workbook: Math Practice. Activity packs also help with following instructions. Klutz kits are perfect for improving hand skills with scissors and glue.

By adding these tips and tools to your child’s daily life, you’re preparing them well for senior JK. They will feel ready and confident for the school days ahead.
