My twins start kindergarten in less than a month. As much as I am freaking out about them going to school and leaving “the nest” I am also excited at the same time. Last year they went to Pre-K for a few hours everyday. They loved it! They never wanted to miss school even if they were sick and they cried the last day of school. I’ll have to remind them of that when they are in high school!
They love to learn. They are full of questions and always eager to learn. To prepare them for kindergarten I have been working with them over the summer with little “homework” assignments. It’s nothing grueling but just enough to keep them on their toes. I have stocked up on workbooks from the dollar store that are perfect for kindergarteners, plus some of the workbooks have their favorite characters on them so it makes it even more fun. My main focus has been on their writing skills. Getting them to learn how to write as at early age is crucial. In the age of computers it is still important to get back to basics and write.
Inexpensive workbooks from the dollar store work great for summer “homework” to keep them writing and learning.
I went to school when we took notes in notebooks and not on tablets and passed notes not text messages between classes. Even though modern technology is always advancing the ability to write will never die.
Writing a handwritten note, a thank you card, a recipe and giving it to someone makes it so much more personal than emailing it. It’s important to me as a mom to make sure my kids to keep those traditions as they get older.
