What is the story behind this pack?
I made the pack for my own son who just turned 4. I wanted him to have an understanding of some basic skills before entering kindergarten. The skills are kept simple (see above). I felt he needed to build his fine motor skills (holding a pencil, maneuvering crayons in boundaries, working to write letters, etc) as well as get a jump start on reading. He was already doing some computer phonics games, but I felt he needed to have more structure with paper and pencil.
The pack was made to be used as ‘guided instruction’. It provides an opportunity for you to be the teacher and sit with your child (or a student) in order to model and teach the above skills.
If you are a teacher and you do a letter of the week, you may find this pack very helpful.
