Kindergarten is a huge milestone in your child’s life (and yours). Whether they have been at home, attending preschool, or at daycare, it’s a big transition.
There will be a lot of new experiences and learning.
We want our little ones to have a smooth, successful transition.
There are a few things that you can do know to prepare your child for the Transition to Kindergarten.
One of those is reviewing kindergarten readiness skills. You can read about other ways here.
This Ready for Kindergarten Bingo is a great tool to help you work on some of those skills your child will need before starting kindergarten or while in kindergarten.
This Ready for Kindergarten Bingo printable is a great tool to use as you review skills your child will need before starting kindergarten. We used this bingo card as we were preparing to transition our middle child to kindergarten. He aced some of the skills, but others he needed a lot more work.
Your child will have so much fun filling out their sheet, they won’t even realize they are doing work. We put stickers on ours to mark the completed tasks. Once the sheet is filled, we offer a small reward. If your child is a go-getter, complete a new sheet each week. Like to take things slow, you will find similar tasks on each row; complete a row each week. Like to mix things up, do a column each week for variety.

I have a toddler that is learning his ABC’s and numbers but I always wonder what else he needs to know. Thanks for this bingo list of things we can work on Kim! Pinned. 🙂
Thanks Aspen Jay!
This is a great list! I’m an elementary teacher so I know first hand the importance of establishing these foundational skills. My oldest is starting Kindergarten in the fall so we will work on these skills. Also, tying shoes! It drives me bonkers how many kids in first and second grade still can’t do this on their own. Thanks for the great list!
Thank you Amy! I really appreciate your feedback! I agree with you on tying shoes. I am at the school a lot and I am amazed at the number of kids walking around with their shoes untied.
This is an excellent list! Thank you for including me! 🙂

What a great idea! I’m always looking for new ways to help out the parents of the preschoolers I work with as a children’s librarian! It’s so helpful to provide them with different resources. Thank you!
