 Looking for quick, engaging activities to prepare your child for kindergarten?
 
Spend a few minutes a day with your child in productive, interactive play using the activities in  Slow and Steady Get Me Ready For Kindergarten! Slow and Steady Get Me Ready For Kindergarten abounds with hands-on, developmental activities that parents can do with their children between the ages of 0 and 5 years old to prepare them for kindergarten. June R. Oberlander, a 19-year veteran kindergarten teacher in Fairfax County, Virginia, first published this book in 1988. Now her granddaughter, Hannah J. Oberlander Knecht, M. Ed., a current teacher in Loudoun County, Virginia, has updated and enhanced these classic activities for today’s parents of the next generation.
Organized in an easy-to-read format, these mini lessons prompt moms, dads, grandparents, caretakers, and guardians to play short, practical games with their children. Step-by-step instructions, tips, and photos guide parents in each lesson. Activities are sorted for each age group between birth and kindergarten, targeting the specific developmental skills of that particular age. In Ages 3 and 4, children’s books are referenced that correspond to the lesson’s content and promote pre-reading skills.
Slow and Steady Get Me Ready For Kindergarten is like no other guide to developmental play ideas for today’s children. These tried-and-true activities will purposefully engage your youngster and enrich his or her physical and mental growth during these crucial early years of life. No iPod app or electronic resource can replace a parent’s face-to-face interaction with his or her child. Recognizing that time in every home is often scarce, these quick and simple activities foster parent-child interaction that is both constructive and meaningful. 
Over the past thirty years since this book’s first publication, standards for kindergarten entrance and placement have continued to rise. Educators and experts conclude that early and consistent play through developmental activities before entering school is essential to a child’s success in the classroom. Thus, it’s more important than ever before for parents and caretakers of young children to use activities that promote the development of motor skills, communication, and cognitive learning. Slow and Steady Get Me Ready For Kindergarten is just the tool that will launch your child’s educational journey!
