Readiness for kindergarten : parent and teacher beliefs by Jerry West( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Opinions vary widely as to what young children should know or be capable of doing to be ready for kindergarten. This paper looks at the beliefs held by two groups who play critical roles in the early education of children: parents of preschoolers and kindergarten teachers. Two surveys that were sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education and were conducted in the spring of 1993 asked parents and teachers to rate several attributes and attitudes in terms of their importance to any child's readiness for kindergarten. Parents and teachers agreed that it was very important or essential that the children be able to communicate their needs and wants verbally, and that the children be enthusiastic and curious in approaching new activities. There was considerable disagreement on other characteristics, however. A majority of the parents believed that for a child to be ready to enter kindergarten, knowing the letters of the alphabet, being able to count to 20 or more, and being able to use pencils and paint brushes were very important or essential, whereas few kindergarten teachers shared these beliefs. Four tables and seven endnotes are included. Contains 16 references. (MDM)

"This report highlights children's gains in reading and mathematics over their first 4 years of school., from the start of kindergarten to the point when most of the children are finishing third grade. It also describes children's achievement status in reading, mathematics, and science at the end of third grade. Information is also presented on children's perceptions of their competence and interests in school subjects, their relationships with peers, and their perceptions about any problem behaviors they might exhibit. Comparisons are made in relation to children's sex, race/ethnicity, number of family risk factors, kindergarten program type, and the types of schools (i.e., public or private) children attended in the first 4 years of school."
