Information - How You Can Help Your Child Before School Starts
most important "readiness work" parents can do at home is to encourage
their child to talk about things. Help your child to speak plainly
and distinctly by providing a good example and encourage him/her to
follow. Be interested in your child's conversations and stories.
Encourage him/her to describe what he/she has seen.
Help your child to learn to follow directions, to develop a sense of
responsibility and to be independent.
Surround your child with good books and read to him/her often. Be seen
enjoying a book yourself.
Be sure your child is physically fit.
