Chalk Talk: Preparing a Student for Kindergarten
When preparing a child for kindergarten, it is important that they have basic skills to build upon. Today’s classroom contains endless possibilities for children, but the kindergarten curriculum of the 21st century highlights literacy and mathematics. Working with numbers is an important skill for children as they grow academically and pursue careers. But how can a parent prepare their four- or five-year-olds to enter this new phase of development? Offer children opportunities to manipulate their environment and explore numbers. At such a young age, children will not be able to understand math the way adults do; their grasp of symbols is not developed. For this reason, the kindergarten classroom is full of props—items that children can manipulate and count. A kindergarten classroom is full of blocks, clocks, dice, puzzles, beads, and shape sorters and children do best when they have been familiarized with all these learning materials.
