Several years ago I decided to write an ebook. I had just sent my youngest off to kindergarten and I was thinking, “There were so many things I wasn’t prepared for, when sending my child off to school.” I had been a first and second grade teacher for many years when my son (my first child) started kindergarten, but I was in shock to find out what kids were expected to do in early kindergarten. I was slightly more prepared when my daughter started, but still not enough. When I moved schools and grade levels, and became a kindergarten teacher, I decided to make it my mission to help families prepare for kindergarten. My first ebook was born. I shared it on my blog and sent it to a few kindergarten teachers I knew. Several schools emailed me to let me know that they were printing it and handing parents a copy when they walked in the door to register for kindergarten. I can’t tell you how happy that makes me!
Well, several years have passed since I first put this booklet out there for people to see. My opinions and suggestions haven’t changed much over the years, but I was thinking that the ebook could use a little updating. Over the past few weeks I’ve been updating photos, updating links to different websites, and adding a few things like the kindergarten readiness videos I made with LeapFrog.
Here it is! I’d love it if you’d share this with anyone and everyone who has an young child at home. It’s a free ebook. I really just want to get the message out about kindergarten readiness.
