But before we start, let’s take a closer look at kindergarten readiness:

How to tell if your child is ready for kindergarten

Here are some of the most common skills a preschooler should master before entering kindergarten.

There are many variations amongst children, however. Make sure to consult your child’s pediatrician and a pre-school teacher in case you have some doubts or concerns.

Before starting kindergarten, a child is usually ready to:

  1. sit still for periods of time
  2. pay attention to a given task
  3. follow instructions from the teacher
  4. put on her own clothes (jackets, hats, shoes, etc.)
  5. interact with peers in a constructive way
  6. show curiosity in learning, reading, etc.

And now let’s break down the skills children usually learn in kindergarten.

What should my kindergartener know?

Not long ago the Common Core curriculum was introduced. I’ve been using it as my guideline to what topics I cover within my printable kindergarten worksheets.

To give you a quick overview, here are some of the biggest milestones covered in kindergarten math curriculum:

  1. count from 1-100 by ones and by tens
  2. comfortably add and subtract within 10
  3. write numbers up to 20
  4. compare groups of objects in terms of more, less, equal
  5. decompose numbers 11-19 into ones and tens 
  6. classify and categorize objects by common attributes
  7. name and manipulate basic geometric shapes

When it comes to English, we need to focus on the following:

  1. name and print upper and lower case letters
  2. form regular plural nouns
  3. understand and use questions, common words, and prepositions
  4. spell simple words phonetically
  5. sort objects into categories
  6. build and expand common vocabulary
  7. understand basic synonyms
