Ready for School: School Readiness Workbook 2.
We have added a new resource to our collection: Ready for School: School Readiness Workbook 2. "When children start formal education, they are expected to have reached certain developmental milestones and have the basic skills necessary for formal education. All children go through these developmental milestones at different stages, and some may need extra help mastering specific skills. For example, a child who stills battles with correct pencil grip may find the initial writing tasks more challenging than those who have mastered this skill." This resource was compiled by an occupational therapist and aims to support and consolidate the early foundation skills necessary to support school readiness." The school readiness activity book consists of various PDF worksheets, activities, exercises, and videos to support children's school readiness skills. Fine motor activities to develop pencil grip and scissor skills Pre-writing Activities Body concept and Emotions Visual and Auditory Perception Activities Spatial Perceptual Skills Visual Sequencing Letters of the alphabet (lower case) (tear and paste, color and beginning sounds) General guidelines to support school readiness. Workbook consists of full colour as well as black and white worksheets. However, quality of the pictures is such that they can be printed in black and white or grayscale. 72 Printable pages.
