In an ideal world, what are the skills that preschoolers need to know in order to best be prepared for kindergarten? I teach five year olds and spend the year with the goal of preparing them for kindergarten as best as I can. I wondered about this a lot last year and I'd like some pointers to keep in mind for this year. I want to try to reinforce as much as I can this year and not feel like I might be missing some things they need to know. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks mucho!!
