Kindergarten Readiness – U= Use Tools

Coming up with a readiness activity that starts with the letter u was quite challenging. Using learning tools is today’s blog topic. Usually, kids soon use pencils, paper, crayons, scissors, and glue once they are at school. Having some previous familiarity with them makes the experience of using them at school much easier. At this time of year, many of these school supplies are on sale so it is much more affordable to have some at home. A shoe box makes a good storage container for writing supplies. Most children will have shown preference for the left or right hand by the age of three, although some new research has found that even unborn babies choose one thumb to suck over the other, most choosing the right hand. Either hand, or maybe even both, have some fun using learning tools. (Can you think of another readiness skill that starts with U?)
