Ten Skills to Teach Your Child Before Kindergarten

Summer is fast approaching, and the fall will bring new kindergarten students to Athlos Academy of Utah. Here are a few skills that kindergarten teachers recommend parents teach their children before the start of school:

  1. Tie shoes
  2. Put on jacket and pants
  3. Blow nose
  4. Buckle themselves in their car seat
  5. Know letter names
  6. Know letter sounds
  7. Count to ten
  8. Know basic shapes
  9. Know basic color
  10. Write their name

Parents should not worry if their child cannot accomplish every skill before the start of school. Every child develops on a different timeline and Athlos Academy teachers will help every child be successful in kindergarten. Until then, please do not hesitate to contact the front office if you have any questions or concerns about the upcoming school year.
