Is your child ready for school

Many parents believe that as a preparation it is enough to teach the child to read, write and count. But it is not.

What problems do younger students face?

  • Most often, children suffer from Study change. In kindergarten, they were treated condescendingly, and the Study was more lenient. At school, the child has certain requirements, and not everyone is ready to accept them.
  • There is a problem of perseverance, often children cannot stay in one place for more than 20 minutes.
  • Many of them do not have independent skills. They cannot prepare for the lesson, lose things, forget their backpacks somewhere.
  • There are many children in the class, and the teacher cannot give enough attention to everyone. It is necessary to get used to the teacher, his demeanor, rules and even voice.
  • And then there are homework assignments, even the easiest ones …

Just imagine how much!

So how do you know if your child is ready for school or not?

Experts identify 4 types of psychological readiness for school.

1. Social. This is a willingness to communicate and interact with an adult. This includes:

  • the ability to understand the authority of the teacher;
  • do not be afraid of him;
  • feel and keep a distance;
  • do what he/she is instructed to do.

How to create this readiness:

  • Expand the circle of communication with unfamiliar adults: include the child in communication with the doctor in the clinic, with the seller in the store, with other parents on the playground.

In addition to adults, the child learns to communicate with peers.

How can you help him with this:

  • enrolle to the daycare;
  • promote communication with other children during walks;
  • invite little friends to visit home;
  • teach role-playing games;
  • take to public events.

2. Emotional-volitional readiness. This is the readiness of the child directly to the learning itself.

How to prepare your baby:

  • accustom to the observance of the regime of the day;
  • do not overload with excessive activities;
  • do not forget that the leading form of activity in preschool age is play. Let the kids play. Teachers and psychologists are unanimous in their opinion: a child who has not finished playing in preschool childhood is not ready for school!
