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.
