School Readiness Activities

What is school readiness?  It is never too early to start providing the kinds of experiences that will help your child enter school ready to succeed. “School readiness” refers to the academic knowledge, independence, communication, and social skills children need to do well in school. Getting your child ready for school requires you to spend time reading, talking, playing with your child, and completing the weekly activity sheet that your child's teacher sends home.
