In today’s fast-paced, microwaveable society, we are always on the go, rushing to and from work with stops along the way at the supermarket, the dry-cleaners, and on and on. In addition, the lawn needs mowing, and it’s time to take the dog to the vet. Parents of young children are also faced with the prospect that their child will soon be starting to school.
When your child arrives at school that first day of kindergarten, he/she is beginning a journey of learning that will take him /her through the years of early childhood to the late teens and beyond. The better prepared he/she is when they arrive for that first day of school, the easier this journey of learning will be. As parents, we know this, but a problem we face in today’s society is determining what our children need to know, and finding the time to help them learn.
This book is designed to answer those questions for you. It focuses on the skills and abilities your child will need to be successful in school. The activities are designed to address the specific skills that will be most useful as your child prepares to begin his/her journey of learning. The second feature of this book shows you how to address and work on those skills as you are on the go, or as you are doing chores around the house.
