This Kindergarten Readiness Checklist makes it easy to see what areas your child might need to focus on before the first day of school. But remember, a child doesn’t need to be able to do every item on the checklist to be ready for kindergarten! Each child is unique, and it’s expected that there may be some areas where your child is still developing skills. Your child’s teacher is excited and eager to meet every child where they’re at when they walk through those doors on the first day of school.

The worksheet is for your soon-to-be kindergartner. It covers colors, numbers, shapes, and more.
