What is "Kindergarten ready"?
Being Kindergarten ready means a child is prepared to take on the challenges of Kindergarten. Kindergarten isn't just about learning to count to five and learning the ABCs. Children are expected to enter Kindergarten with varying social and academic skills that will allow them to advance to first grade. For example:
Knowing how to use scissors properly
Cooperating with other children
Identifying shapes and colors
Acquiring academic vocabulary and utilizing it in everyday life
Being ready to read and write prior to the start of Kindergarten
