Kindergartners begin their educational journey by applying their skills to learn how to read and write. They are eager to learn and wonder about the world and will soak up information like sponges. They now know thousands of words, are developing friendships and following rules. Kindergartners love attention and seek your approval. They may get upset if they feel they are not being listened to. They are energetic and crave physical activity like running, jumping and climbing. Give them opportunities to be involved in projects and celebrate their accomplishments. They will develop confidence in themselves and a lifelong love for learning.
