The Reading Learning Center has a new program called KinderPrep for four to six year olds who are in pre-kindergarten and kindergarten.
The program teaches fundamental skills, including print concepts, phonological awareness, phonics, sight words, and emergent reader fluency. Math skills include counting, numerals and the quantities they represent, basic addition, and geometric shapes. All activities are exciting, fun and developmentally appropriate.
Pennsylvania has aligned its standards with the Common Core State Standards for all subject areas, which include pre-reading, reading and math skills at the kindergarten level. It is so important for young children to develop the building blocks essential for success in reading and math.
Academic skills that were once taught in first grade are now expected of kindergarten children. KinderPrep makes learning these skills fun.
