Helping Your Child Prepare for Kindergarten You can do many things to help prepare your child for learning. And the more you learn together, the happier your child will be.

READ

TALK

• Read out loud to your child every day. • Have your child “read” to you, even if they are not actually reading yet. • Let your child draw, “write,” and doodle often. Provide blank paper or a tablet to use that is his or her own. • Have family storytelling time. • Do fun learning activity booklets together. • Have conversations and be a good listener. • Play games – for instance, games involving rhyming, counting, matching, or guessing.

PLAY

SING

• Read road signs, grocery-store signs, restaurant signs, license plates, street signs, and house numbers as you travel together. • Visit the public library often. • Go to the library and select dual-language audio books. • Select vocabulary-building bilingual children’s books. • Label all of the items in your home with index cards. For example, “door” posted on the front door, etc.

• Limit television time to educational programs that you watch together.

HELPING AT HOME

Invite your child to help you with simple things around the house. This will make your child feel important and useful. With your assistance, use that time to help your child develop confidence, as well as valuable math and language skills like matching, sorting clothes, measuring ingredients, counting, reading simple words from a shopping list, or finding a word on a specific item on the pantry shelf.
