Checklist for First Grade

Your child will be heading to first grade before too long and you assume that he/she will be well prepared.  Here is a  readiness checklist of skills needed for first grade listing many, but not all of the main skills needed for first grade. Please take a moment to look at it, evaluate if your child is or is not successful with these skills and then continue to practice them over the summer with your child.

Kindergarten children love to write and as they prepare to enter first grade now is a good time to work on editing skills.  Here is a checklist that your child can use to check his/her writing for capitalization, punctuation marks, full sentences, clear ideas etc. Print one out and keep it near your child’s work station as it will really come in handy as they begin to learn to edit their own work.
