Your child is heading into grade one, a massive leap from Kindergarten. So how do you prepare your child to excel? Do you let them have the summer off to play and enjoy? Or should you cram in as many curricula as possible to ensure they know how to excel in grade one? Is there a user manual for getting your child ready for grade one? You likely have so many questions about how to prepare your child for grade one.
As parents, we want to help our children excel and do well in every aspect of their lives. To read, to write, to learn without any trouble, to play, to laugh. But how do we keep our children from falling behind and help them prepare for what’s ahead?
How do you prepare your child for grade one while avoiding summer learning loss?
First things first, don’t stress. After completing Junior and Senior Kindergarten, your child is likely right where they need to be in Grade one. The real issue is summer learning loss and keeping your child from losing all the knowledge they gained.
Unfortunately, most children will lose 2.6 months of math skills, two months of reading skills and the equivalent of one month of overall learning during the summer months.
Reading, writing, math, and learning are all skills that your child must continually practice to develop correctly, especially during the summer months.
So now the real question is, how do you prepare your child for grade one?
Simplifying grade one prep.
We often think that preparing our child for the next grade level needs to be some extravagant endeavour when in all actuality, it is a simple process when done correctly.
Using the Summer Schoolio: Ready for Grade 1 book, you can quickly help your child stay on track with their learning.
