School readiness is not just readiness for school, but it also includes whether your child can sit properly throughout the length of the school hours or not. Whether he can comprehend the teacher’s language or not. Or if he is indeed ready for school or not.
For understanding this topic further, let's go through some basic and helpful suggestions.
First try to catch the signals from his/her activities. You know your kid is good to go, first and foremost if he/she is toilet trained (daytime), can open the lunchbox or unwrap the food, and he responds clearly to the instructions at home. But if not, you have to pay attention. Don't worry!! Your kid just needs a little more training and before you know it, he/she will be ready for kindergarten.
For attending the kindergarten classes, he/she should be able to sit and listen for at least 10 minutes, doing his work and should be able to follow the prompts given by the teachers. You should especially focus on his/her physical strength and endurance so that he/she can at least sit through the class hours.
Remember your kid’s emotional understanding is what will help him/her enjoy the playtime (as you are not around). He is ready for school only if he can perceive the good and bad feelings, understand and regulate his/her own emotions. Emotional readiness for school is crucial before physical readiness.
Children are untainted as they make no distinction between their peers. Still, you have to tell him/her about how to interact with others appropriately. That, he/she has to display the ability to compromise and say sorry when at fault. Teach him how he/she can perform well in a group activity.
