Preparing Children for the New School Year over the summer.
so my 5 yr old is in pre k now and going into Kindergarten in the fall. i want to teach him a few things so he has a good head start.. for instance i want to teach him his site words, his letters, colors, etc.. all the basics. he does have a good since of alot of them already but i feel it would be better if he had a good core down of it all before school even starts.
my oldest is going into first. he had two years of kindergarten. we are going to continue working on site words and adding to them, reading more, more sentence writing and more.
does anyone have any tips on how i can go about teaching over the summer? i am a full time working mom and can find time for about a half hour a day for each kid for learning.
i also though i would reward with stickers, and im trying to figure out how to plan it out. like should i get a planner just for them and each day i work on specific things for example two site words a day,etc..
any ideas how i can succeed at all this. i could use all the tips i can get specially from moms who home school. and any idea of the best way to teach site words?
