Moving on to words on their own. They will be responsible for their own belongings. A teacher running a kindergarten class on their own has so much responsibility such as curriculum, assessments, instructions, preparation, and many other tasks that they cannot keep track of Bobby’s shoes, or Mary’s hair bow. They cannot solve every issue of which blue crayon belongs to whom or redo worksheets because a child can’t find their homework. This is why it is so important to teach your children how to blow their noses, wipe themselves after using the bathroom, and put their stuff away.
Academic progress is important and at Young Scholars the teachers are very aware of that but they are also knowledgeable in the fact that learning math, science, and literacy can be difficult if they become overwhelmed with tasks of self-care. To best prepare your child for grade school it is best to think about the whole child. Introduce the alphabet, numbers, writing, and science but forget to teach about emotions, responsibility, and respect for themselves and others. The teachers here at Young Scholars are the best resource you can have to bolster your child and give them a head start for grade school life.
