Families can help prepare preschoolers who will be attending Kindergarten in the new school year by working on skill development at home. When it comes to math – you can work on laying the foundation for conceptual understanding of numbers, their relationship, combinations and operations.
Incoming kindergarten students should be able to:
- Know that numbers tell “how many”
- Count to 20
- Identify the numbers 0-10
- Count our 20 objects
- Identify shapes (circle, rectangle, triangle, square)
- Describe where things are (above, below, beside, in front, in back, next to, left, right)
