As a new mom, relying on other mom’s advice and tips has been invaluable.Kids are back to school, and with that, more learning for new moms.
Kinder is not what it used to be, and with advanced curriculums, it means that children have to start kinder with several lessons in their pocket like the alphabet, and how to spell their name.
A mom, turned author, Stacey Kannenberg
at Ceday Valley Publishing
, found a great way to put together the alphabet, numbers and shapes for parents and teachers in order to allow them to empower kids entering kindergarten and the first grade. Ms. Kannenberg offers a wonderful set of books: Let’s Get Ready for Kindergarten and Let’s Get Ready for First Grade. These books were made to be used in homes, preschools, head start programs, libraries and schools. Stacey’s books have impacted education and she is becoming a favorite presenter at early learning and educational conferences. Sales of over 60,000 copies, and knowing that the books are in over 400 school districts nationwide is not just a measure of how successful Stacey’s books are, but reassurance if you use them, that you are definitively putting your child in the right path.
So, to prepare for Kinder arm yourself with these durable books that includes guides, tips and motivation building hints throughout the book. Mrs. Good leads the teaching way with the help of the Cedar Valley Kids. This book is really for all types of backgrounds.
Let’s Get Ready for Kindergarten covers the 7 items that children need to know for kindergarten testing:
• Know the uppercase alphabet and name the letters out of sequence or mixed up.
• Know the numbers to 10 and identify the numbers out of sequence.
• Identify basic colors.
• Identify basic shapes.
• Identify basic American coins.
• Count objects to 10.
• Show how far they can count toward 100.
Not limited to the list above, the book also talks about seasons, opposites, has a tap phone to teach kids to dial their home number and more. The laminated pages of the book allow you to use erasable markers to trace and re-trace numbers and letters, making it easy for little ones.
The Kindergarten book is also available in a English/Spanish version, and truth be told, the Spanish in this book is incredibly good. Formal, with perfect spelling and grammatically correct, the book delivers the right bases to start working on Spanish too. This means that the knowledge of a second language can be given with confidence, and in the proper way with Let’s Get Ready for Kindergarten / A Prepararse para el Kindergarten!
