starting kindergarten is fun!
The calendar contains:
• Ideas for fun things to do that will help your child get ready for school
• Kindergarten registration and other school information
• Books every child should hear before starting school
• Contact information for elementary schools and libraries
Important things to know:
All children are different and learn at their own pace. This calendar will help you plan
activities that will help your child grow in the skills needed to start kindergarten. Children
do better in school if they know more than just letters, numbers, colors, and shapes. They
should have good social and physical skills, and enjoy learning new things. Use the guide
below as you work with your child to build those skills and get ready for kindergarten.
Having fun is an important part of learning!
Your child learns best when doing fun and interesting things with you!
How to use the calendar:
The activities in this calendar are designed for 4 and 5 year olds who will be starting kindergarten next year. They will
keep your child busy and learning from September to August. Use this calendar as a guide for fun ideas, but make up
some of your own activities too. Be sure to include family members and friends. Have a wonderful year together getting
ready for the big event – going to kindergarten!
