Off to a Good Start as Your Child Enters Kindergarten.
Alexander, Rosalyn H.
This question and answer booklet is designed to help parents and their children understand the importance of successful school entry and what happens in school. Questions include: How do I get my child into school? What is kindergarten like? How can I encourage school adjustment? What if my child is not eager to start school? How do I deal with my feelings? What can I do to help me feel more secure? Will school people understand the nontraditional family? What are general kindergarten program objectives? How will kindergarten meet my child's needs as a total person? How much structure will my child need after school? How do I create a good learning environment at home? Should I teach academics at home? Once school starts, how do I keep involved? What if my child will not talk about school? What should I do when my child is not feeling well? Who are school specialists and how can they help? Research findings have been incorporated into answers. The text lists physical, social, mental, and emotional characteristics for kindergarten children, as well as goals for development in these areas. Special sections of the booklet concern teaching children about safety and readiness for first grade. A list of suggested readings for children and parents is provided. (RH)
