kindergarten prep | what’s been keeping me focused this summer, along with our crazy swim and dive schedules, trip to the beach, and visits with family, has been the idea that my job as a parent is to do all I can to prepare my littlest for her big Kindergarten year. So rather than reinvent the wheel, I turned to my archives a bit to see what we did last summer to get the O-man ready for his big Kindergarten year. I made some adjustments, changes, and adaptations for Cora.
Use a tissue box, a hole punch and a shoelace for a practical life skill practice and a fine motor activity in one! Like so many things (for both kids and adults) learning on a small scale can make it hard to see what's really going on. If you blow it up and break it down, everything gets a lot easier.
