Start building kindergarten success before the school year even begins! Give these free calendar pages (April through August 2018) to families during Kindergarten Round-Up and invite them to be partners with you early! Let these calendars be gentle reminders to PRESCHOOL FAMILIES to sing, talk, dance, and read with their children every night. Encourage them to practice the "ABC Phonics: Sing, Sign, and Read!" song by Nellie Edge, memorize nursery rhymes, write and draw often, count everything, take walks to explore nature, tell stories, enjoy family dinnertime, and savor childhood—the family is still the most important teacher a child will ever have!
“We have a covenant with families that says we jointly share responsibility for educating your child.” ~ Ernest Boyer
