Get the 5 Skills You Need to Know
Prepare your child for kindergarten with fun, easy, learning activities.
KinderReady is the only course that helps you get your child ready for kindergarten by providing parents with the resources they need to make their child’s first year of school a fantastic year.
Do you know:
What is expected of all entering kindergarteners?
What your child will be tested on?
What the school will do with the test results?
As an elementary teacher, I have always been interested in learning and teaching. One day at the school I taught at, I noticed all of these kindergarten children. They were in a special group of children who had failed the beginning of the year assessment. Imagine that- children are labeled “behind” in their FIRST year of school! It wasn’t the parents’ fault, it was just that they had no idea what was expected of their children.
So, here's what I did:
When I finally had children, I wanted to prepare them for school.After working with my own children I was able to find a way to creatively play & teach them at the same time. My daughter entered kindergarten reading at a second grade level and had a great year. She was not frustrated because she already knew what was expected of her.

Built my daughter’s self-confidence
Kindergarten is an academic environment where children are expected to come in with certain skills. It can be very frustrating for both the child and the parents when school is difficult. No parent wants to hear that their child is “behind” or “low”, especially if they don’t even know what their child is supposed to know. Not to mention in school teachers have limited time to go over skills, so it becomes a bigger stress to get the information in a short amount of time.
Why should I spend time now with my child?
Most schools give entering kindergarteners assessments to see their academic level. By going over these skills now, your child will more likely to perform better, be prepared, and confident when entering school.
Entering kindergarteners are usually tested either during the summer or the first few weeks of schools. The school decides on the assessment, and uses these results to make classes, determine remediation, and see what skills your child needs to work on.
That's what school is for to learn...why would I pay for a course?
Yes, to a point that's true. School is for learning. However, keep in mind that while you have only one kindergartener (unless you have twins or multiples), your child will be in a class of anywhere from 20-27 students! The teacher will try her (or his) best, but they have a lot of curriculum to cover in a short amount of time. The curriculum is designed with children having basic skills already. Just think of it this way...can you make a wedding cake without knowing how to read a recipe?
Not to mention that children who don't make adequate progress are more likely to:
have behavior problems (because they can't do the work)
get easily frustrated
have the potential to be retained
How is KinderReady different from (insert course name)?
Well, KinderReady was written by a teacher and a mom! I know that as moms we have limited time, so we have to do short, fun activities before our children get tired or bored. Plus KinderReady comes with an ebook that you can download to your tablet or phone, so you're always able to do an activity with your child. KinderReady is also not a load of worksheets either, it's real, engaging activities that are intentional to help your child learn.

Guess what? You can get the secret! Your child can become a KinderStar!
Who is this for?
This course is for any parent who wishes to help their child succeed! If you are willing to work with your child at least 30 minutes a day, you will begin to see results! There is no need for other materials, however you can go to my Resources page to see what I use to teach my children.
This course works for all children, because they will think that they are playing! All children learn at different rates, so it is important to use different methods to ensure your child is learning. Each activity has at least 3 different ways to teach the objective to your child! Since I have twins, I completely understand that multiple methods and exposures work best when teaching children. By beginning NOW, you are setting your child up for success!
