 What can I do to assist my child to be ready for full time, formal schooling?
  •  Check your child's eyesight and hearing
  •  Encourage your child to do pencil and paper tasks -  use all sorts of  items ( highlighters, pencils,  textas,  chalk,  a finger in the sand) - maybe 5 mins  doing a pencil and paper task before screen time e.g. iPad, TV, movie
  • Draw your child's attention to the world about them -  ask them questions and  look for answers that give detail and facts
  •  Share  books for at least 10 mins a day -  build your child's awareness of the  format of books,  the print that is used,  how pictures assist in telling the story,  discussing what  might have happened before or after the story
  •  Encourage independence in dressing, eating, toileting routines
  • Build your child's capacity to follow 2 step directions e.g.  go and clean your teeth and put your shoes on ;  drink your  milk and put the glass on the sink.
  • Build  responsibility for managing and looking after their own  belongings e.g. bag, hat, purse or toy.
