Probably one of the best ways to really find out what type of kindergarten is going to be the right fit for you, is to explore! Go to each school and talk to the staff, teachers and other parents. Take a tour, find out what a normal day in their kindergarten consists of and see how you feel about it, think about your specific child, which environment do you think they would thrive in? You may never know for sure until you try one school out and see how it goes, nothing is set in stone, you can always change your mind. Which ever way you decide to go, always get feedback from your kids, because ultimately this is about them, and they should have fun and find benefit from which ever kindergarten they attend.
Kindergarten teachers are often looking for effective ways to teach their kindergarten students sight words. Many kindergarten teachers use different methods for teaching their student sight words such as teaching through the use of sight word games, sight word lists, and sight word activities. The appropriate method for teaching kindergartener students these important words should be determined by the teacher through assessment of age appropriateness, learning disabilities and other kindergarten student/classroom related factors. Sight words are the most common words used in the English language. A kindergarten student should be taught these important words so they can recognize the words on "sight." These important words are the core foundation for reading and are taught in every elementary school across the United States. Kindergarten sight words lists are important for enhancing student reading. The word list is made up of words that frequently appear in preschool and kindergarten level reading material.
With over 25 years of experience with children, and two of them as a kindergarten teachers aide, I can tell you that your childs first days and weeks of kindergarten can be a smooth transition. I had many children in my kindergarten that just needed to be prepared for kindergarten by being told what to expect in order to feel safe walking into the classroom. What will the first day be like? What will we learn? What kind of field trips will we go on? Most important, will anyone at school think Im special? Who are all the adults I will be spending time with while Im at school? What happens in the classroom throughout the year? Make sure you read as many books about going to kindergarten to your child as you can. Look for books that talk about all aspects of the school year. Take your child to the school and walk them around the different classrooms they will be spending time in. The library, the gym, the music room, the kindergarten classrooms, the school office, and the playground. Introduce him to the principal, the secretary, the teachers, and the teachers aides. You will give them the best possible start to their school year by helping them feel comfortable in their new surroundings.
For many years, digital learning games have been helping kids of all ages build new skills, grasp difficult concepts and improve their understanding of school curriculum. Young children find these games especially engaging, which can be useful when it comes to teaching kindergarten math. Learning Through Play Its no secret that kids love to play. Kindergarteners can get hours of enjoyment from the simplest of things, so it makes sense to utilize this natural tendency towards playfulness to enhance their learning experience. Digital learning games can improve kindergarten math skills simply by being fun for the kids who play them. Instead of sitting down with a worksheet or textbook, your child can use your home computer to enter an interactive learning environment that provides the tools they need to grasp basic math concepts. As they navigate their way through colorful levels filled with interesting characters, theyll be building the skills necessary to get them ready for addition, subtraction and other more advanced childhood math.
Be it private or public, every school will have its own standards, practices and guidelines, which is why it is good to inquire about the previously mentioned topics with the specific schools you are considering. However, here are some additional general considerations to take in terms of typical private, and public kindergartens specifically. Private school can be very expensive, even at kindergarten level, and tends to be a formal setting. Private kindergarten usually have smaller classroom sizes, meaning the children are more likely of getting one-on-one help from the teacher, which may or may not be a concern in a public kindergarten, depending on the teacher to child ratio. Public schools usually have more of a variety of activities available because of having more students, (a smaller school would not have enough participants). Public school will have more diversity in the students, which gives your child exposure to people from all walks of life, which is beneficial to have friends from different backgrounds. These are of course only a few broad examples of both private and public kindergartens, most of all you need to be a good example to your child, and do your homework on your local schools!
Its not wise to use classical poetry during kindergarten graduation. Classical poetry is not appealing to many people including adults. It is therefore unreasonable to expect that young kindergarten children will be enthusiastic at such an early stage. Kindergarten graduation then calls for the use of local poetry perhaps in the dialect of the family so that you are not overburdening their young minds with very heavy stuff. Those parents who have done this before say that when you let children get involved in the creation of the poetry they tend to be very enthusiastic and it creates an atmosphere of happy informality which is ideal for such kindergarten graduation ceremonies.
