How to prepare your child for Kindergarten in just 2 weeks
Many parents are having issues with the Common Core Standards for a variety of reasons, but the CCS is being implemented in almost every school in the country beginning this August. If your child is going to Kindergarten this year, this will be your first taste of the CCS. Getting your child ready for Kindergarten and CCS can be done in the first two weeks before school begins.
CCS will focus on “representing and comparing whole numbers, initially with sets of objects; describing shapes and space” in Kindergarten and most learning time will be dedicated to numbers and math. Students will learn to write numbers and to use them to represent quantities. They will learn basic addition and subtraction, will show these problems with objects and groups of objects, and will learn and use shapes to describe their worlds. They will learn key words and how to use them in a sentence.
