Focus on fine motor skills
Work with your child so they can...
  • Cut with child scissors
  • Fold a piece of paper
  • Use glue/glue sticks
  • Trace letters
  • Draw pictures
  • Write their first name
  • Zip their jacket
  • Fasten their snaps
  • Wash their hands
Kindergarten teachers work with children at many stages of development. You can help them spend more time on reading, writing and math by working with your students on self-help skills before they join us. Review Liz’s post on Fine Motor Skills for fun ways to do this.
Parents of 2020 Kindergarten students will be asked to complete an Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) at the beginning of the year to help teachers know your child's strengths and areas for more practice.
