Overview

Is your child ready for kindergarten? Should you wait another year before sending your child to kindergarten? What else can you do to help prepare your child for success?

The Kindergarten Readiness Guide will help you answer these questions. This book is beneficial to any parent or teacher of a preschool or kindergarten student. For best results, we suggest you begin using this guide when the child is two, three, or four years old and continue using the checklists and recommended strategies throughout the child’s kindergarten school year. If your child is currently in kindergarten or starting this year, it is never too late!
There are so many simple ways that parents can help prepare their children for kindergarten. Parents want to help their children excel in school, they just don’t always know how. This Kindergarten Readiness Guide, based directly on national and state kindergarten standards, gives both parents and teachers a valuable tool to help young children achieve success in kindergarten and beyond.

The Kindergarten Readiness Guide includes:

• Easy to follow directions that allow you to work one-on-one with your child to determine exactly what s/he knows;
• Checklists to track their progress;
• Simple, fun teaching suggestions for home and school to improve over 100 important skills in Reading, Writing, Math, Speaking and Listening, Motor Skills, and Social/Emotional Development;
• Answers to frequently asked questions about kindergarten and preschool;
• and Lists of recommended books, websites, DVDs, and educational software.

The Kindergarten Readiness Guide helps parents take their child’s education into their own hands. It is so important to start early and be consistent. Reading this book and implementing the simple strategies within is a big step toward ensuring that a child’s kindergarten year is a happy, successful, and stress-free one for both parent and child.

The author has been a kindergarten teacher, preschool teacher, and Preschool Director for many years and holds a Masters degree in Early Childhood Education. She currently manages a Kindergarten Readiness website that coincides with The Kindergarten Readiness Guide.

There are many books on the market available that will tell you tons of information about what your child needs to know for kindergarten and how to prepare your child for the experience. But there aren't many that give you actual activities to go along with their suggestions. "The Kindergarten Readiness Guide" by Jaclyn Bower is just the book every parent should have to help their preschooler get ready for the big step.

Thanks so much! This is great. Your book has been very helpful. My daughter has learned so much! I'll go through the evaluation with her and see where her strengths are and what we still need to work on. Thank you again.

What a goldmine of wonderful ideas for parents. Written at a level easily accessible for all to understand.
Terri Crovato
What I find most helpful in your book are the teaching suggestions. I love all the little games that can be used throughout the day. Also, it would have never occurred to me to mention the author of the books we read. Now, Cheyenne can identify all Tommie dePaula books!! The reading comprehension suggestions are fantastic. My comment is I wish I had ordered it much much sooner.

As 2 busy parents with 1 child who is already attending school, it is often difficult to find time to work with our younger child. This book allows me the opportunity to work one-on-one with her, while ensuring she gets a jumpstart on her education. Brooke just recently started preschool and her teacher was amazed at the amount of things she already knew considering that she is 4 and she started at the school in December. I am sure that it is due to the incorporation of your book. Thank you!

"I have been using the Kindergarten Readiness Guide for 2 months with my four year old daughter. Since using it, I have noticed a drastic change in her willingness to learn. In just a short time, she has improved in her recognition of lower case letters (12 out of 26) to (20 out of 26). She also recognizes and names all of her basic shapes (square, rectangle, circle, diamond, triangle, and oval), along with two of the three dimensional shapes (cube and cone). As two busy parents with one child who is already attending school, it is often difficult to find time to work with our younger child. The Kindergarten Readiness Guide allows me the opportunity to work one-on-one with her, while ensuring she gets a jumpstart on her education." --Tonnette Harris, Downey, CA (7 months later) "Brooke just recently started preschool and her teacher was amazed at the amount of things she already knew considering that she is 4 and she started at the school in December.
