Is Your Child Ready for Kindergarten? Dora Can Help!

Well folks, for many of you the countdown to kindergarten has begun! September 1st is only 284 days away! I found this cool quiz that parents can take to find out how ready their child is for kindergarten. Then based on your answers, the site provides you with a customized Readiness Plan for your child and games and activities to help your child achieve these goals.

Here is the link: Nick Jr Kindergarten Readiness Quiz

Check it out and let me know what you think! I'd love your feedback.

Parents and Teachers: Remember to focus on all four areas of kindergarten readiness that are critical to success in school: 1) social and emotional intelligence, 2) early literacy and math skills, 3) parental involvement in schools, and 4) health and wellness basics!

For more Useful Links, check out my Kindergarten Readiness website. I will be regularly updating the site with current articles and links about preparing your children for kindergarten social, emotionally, physically, and cognitively. Also, the 2010 version of my Kindergarten Readiness ebook for parents and teachers will be available on my website before the end of the year! Stay tuned!
