Be Cool in Preschool

Here is a way to help your child make a smooth transition if she is new to preschool, or even if it is a school your child knows. Offer to come in and visit the classroom to read with the class. Most teachers will welcome your presence. Of course you will want to wait until school is well underway and the class routines are set to actually visit. But now might be a good time to make your interest and willingness known.

What I think . . .

There are all kinds of readers. Some—like my daughter and me—are never without a book to read for pleasure. Others—like my son—are careful, analytical, and curious readers who read primarily to seek information from the page.

No matter what kind of reader your child becomes, you can help him or her get started. After all, you are your child’s first teacher. And, best of all, you can have some fun in the process.

Please feel free to share your own ideas. Tell me about ways you've enjoyed reading with your child.
