Here are two informational documents you can use to evaluate your child’s progress in his/her development of literacy skills and school readiness.
1. Milestones of Early Literacy. Birth to age 7. What should you be doing to help your child? What skills should they be demonstrating?
2. Kindergarten Readiness Checklists – provided as both an English Kindergarten checklist or a Spanish Kindergarten checklist. Is your child ready? Does your child have the skills and maturity to allow kindergarten to be a wonderful experience?
