What’s the Key to Succeeding in Kindergarten?
Mastering the right reading skills.
Reading plays a huge role in your child’s experience in kindergarten. Children at this age learn a lot of important phonics skills that they need to practice. They need to develop a positive relationship with books and reading. They’re expected to master new skills throughout the school year and build the confidence they need to successfully learn to read.
