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)
