Now that school is in session, the excitement of new teachers and classmates might be wearing down as everyone settles into a routine. For new kindergarteners especially, it can be difficult, as the kids realize how tiring a school day can be, and parents realize the number of things their child is expected to learn in kindergarten!
There are many things that can be done to help your kids thrive in kindergarten, including working with your child on basic academic skills, such as writing his/her name and reading letters; teaching critical thinking skills by encouraging them to ask “Why” questions; working on arts-and-crafts projects to get your child more comfortable using scissors, markers and other supplies he/she will be working with in kindergarten; and making shopping for school supplies a fun experience by letting your child make some choices of their own, such as the color of his/her backpack or pencil case.
To help you celebrate and prepare, Quilting Treasures has partnered with The Jim Henson Company and Dinosaur Train to offer you some fabulous fabrics featuring everyone’s favorite character Buddy. The fabrics can be used to practice some of these skills with your children, and create a fun Dinosaur Train themed item that your child can take to their new kindergarten – with the company of Buddy!
