Kindergarten Readiness Free Printables, Checklists and More

Is your child starting kindergarten soon? If so, you are going to love all the free printables and kindergarten prep checklists and tips on this page.

My grandson is starting kindergarten this year and his mom and I thought it would be a good idea to find out what things he needed to know and skills he needed to have BEFORE starting kindergarten.

Let’s face it, summer vacation can really do a number on all school-aged children – seems things they’ve previously learned just fall slap out of their heads over the summer, doesn’t it?

But for our little guy starting “big kid” school this year, we want to be extra sure he is ready and has his basic skills sharpened up so THAT part of the transition will be easier for him.

What Your Child Needs To Know BEFORE Starting Kindergarten

While the list below might vary slightly from state to state, these things are a good guideline for what your child needs to know before starting kindergarten.

Ready for Kindergarten?  What your child needs to know BEFORE starting kindergarten this year.

We realized we were going to need a little help with some skills to be sure he was ready, so I went checking around online for some worksheets and checklists to help us out.

My goodness at all the WONDERFUL resources I found online to help parents prepare their child for kindergarten – and they are all FREE resources as well.
