The ability to hold pencils and crayons, use a paintbrush and cut with scissors are also skills that are assumed will be mastered upon entering kindergarten. As a parent, you can help your child hone these skills by providing plenty of practice at home. If you are not the crafty type, there are many websites available that offer simple instructions for basic arts and craft projects that allow children to master their motor skills before entering school. Once your child has started kindergarten, things move quickly. This does not mean every child has mastered every subject, making it important for parents to reinforce the skills at home. If you provide opportunities for your child to play kindergarten games for kids online, he can consistently review what he learned throughout the year, enabling him to keep a constant understanding of the basics as they move forward in the classroom.
There are two important points that may be kept in mind here: The learning should be fun. It should not feel like work, but play. For otherwise, children will quickly get bored. Hence it would be a good idea to use a lot of interesting activities, games, coloring sheets, illustrated kindergarten worksheets etc. You should be well prepared with these teaching aids, which can be made very easily. The learning should be real-worldly. It is easiest to learn and remember when whatever is learned is immediately applied to a practical, real-life situation. You should use every opportunity to teach and regularly reinforce basic concepts taught, in real-life and in real-time. For instance, during snack-time, if a child is eating a biscuit, you can say - B for biscuit. While waiting for a school van, you can say - V for Van and so on.
The next step is learning to write numbers, and this is where mathematics worksheets become almost a necessity. Unless you have great handwriting, lots of spare time and a fair amount of patience, writing worksheets will help you teach this valuable skill to your child. Dot-to-dot, tracing, following the lines and other writing exercises will help your child learn how to write numbers. A good set of worksheets will include practice sheets with various methods to help your child learn to write numbers. Patterns and sequencing and basic addition and subtraction should follow on from counting and number recognition. By the time your child is starting kindergarten or school, they should be able to count to 20 with ease, write numbers, do simple addition sums, and have some understanding of patterns and sequences. Even if they are attending preschool, extra practice at home will help them improve their math.
