Play into Kindergarten Readiness
"One thing I love is that the activities give options for expansion and leave room for creativity.
I also feel guided because you've included so much of the rationale in the short explanations of the activities.
I feel very equipped as a parent and I'm learning so much!"

"This is how children need to be learning—with hands-on, playful activities! <3
The ideas within this book are perfect for parents and early childhood educators looking to teach their kids in real, meaningful ways."
In Play into Kindergarten Readiness, we cover the four fundamental preschool skills through play, setting your child up for success.
We thoroughly cover the seven areas of phonological awareness with your little one before introducing letters and sounds in a very special order. Your child will be ready for reading success!
The six areas of math readiness are critical, as all future math skills build on them. By understanding how numbers fit and work together, your child will have a strong foundation for later multiplication, division, fractions, and more.
Crossing the midline strengthens the corpus callosum—a huge bundle of nerve fibers that connects the right and left hemispheres of the brain. Development of the corpus callosum is essential for skills like reading, balance, processing speed, and problem-solving.
Positive self-confidence is at the heart of Play into Kindergarten Readiness. With thoughtfully created activities, your child will develop the skills to recognize that if they put their mind to something, they are capable of anything.
"As a FYI It's been a few months since I ordered Kindergarten Readiness and Play into Math and Reading and my son has improved drastically!
His confidence is back, when we take walks he automatically looks for shapes and numbers, setting the table is his favorite and his scissor skills are unbelievable lol.
I am so thankful for your courses, the idea that I have a plan for him every day is just comforting.
I will start Kindergarten at Home in a few months when he has mastered Kindergarten Readiness. I am just so thrilled that he is motivated again to learn, even though he doesn't know he is learning, it's brilliant!"

I also support parents, caregivers, and fellow teachers in their journeys with little ones through my blog, ebooks, and digital courses. Through decades of teaching young children (including my own!), I have refined the best activities to build strong foundations in literacy and mathematics.
You will learn all about phonological skills in Play into Kindergarten Readiness! Phonological skills actually have nothing to do with the letters in the alphabet, but they are essential for building a strong foundation for reading. Phonological awareness focuses on auditory skills, hearing the relationship between words—the rhymes, the sounds, the syllables, etc. Did you know that a child’s ability to rhyme in Kindergarten is a direct predictor of his or her reading success in grade one? It’s true! Rhyming is the first of seven phonological skills that your little one will master with Play into Kindergarten Readiness.
