It's Week Two for Ready Freddy! (July 19)
Welcome to Week Two! This week’s session is designed to help parents and children appreciate that every child is unique. Because parents know their child’s skills, abilities, and interests better than anyone else, they must be involved in school. Parent involvement helps ensure that all children are challenged and supported so that they can reach their full potential.
As children enter kindergarten, they are expected to be on their way to mastering academic skills. However, children vary in their skills and interest. One child might be able to draw elaborate pictures, while another loves to sing. One child might know their numbers because they love to play board games, while another never sits still and can climb up any structure on the playground.
If parents communicate this information to teachers, they can use it to help their children grow. For example, hopscotch may help the “climber” learn about numbers, music could help the “singer” learn to spell new words, and the “drawer” might be ready to start writing letters.
Here's what to expect this week.
