With many schools nearing the half way point of this school year, we start looking ahead to next year and next year’s first graders. What does your school recommend in the area of first grade readiness? Do you go only by age (what age)? Do you do any sort of testing (and if so, what tests)? Do you have other criteria or suggestions? If your school does not have a kindergarten program in school, does the school have any other requirements for kindergarten at home?
And if you are a first grade teacher, what do you feel is important that children bring with them to the school learning experience? What things do you like them to know and do?
