Fairview Elementary and CF Early Childhood Education Center: Kindergarten Readiness Checklist

Help your child be ready on Day 1 of kindergarten! Here's what your family can work on this summer:

  • Write their first and last name
  • Learn their age and birthday
  • Know parents' first and last names
  • Say the alphabet
  • Count and recognize numbers 0-10
  • Know the colors blue, red, yellow, green, brown, orange, black, and purple
  • Know the primary shapes: circle, triangle, diamond, rectangle, and square
  • Know how to hold a pencil/crayon correctly
  • Know some of the alphabet by sight, like the letters in their name

Don't forget to encourage and praise your child for trying. Remember: Everyone wins when families and schools work together!
