I have been working with him to make sure he is ready for kindergarten next year. They have really high expectations for these kids now and I'm just worried he isn't going to have all the skills he needs. HI can barely get him to finish one worksheet. How do I motivate him?

At 4 doing one workbook page at a time is plenty. After he's completed one do something else for a while and maybe try again later. Try teaching things in other ways such as through playing games. You want learning to be fun and not a chore. If you put too much pressure on him to do worksheets he may develop a really bad attitude about school before he even starts.
