Free Printable Kindergarten Readiness Checklist for Parents
When my first son was approaching Kindergarten, I emailed the Director of Elementary Education in our school district to ask about Kindergarten assessments and Kindergarten readiness. We were doing a lot of preschool activities at home together, but I wanted to make sure that I was on the track with what I was teaching him.
Kindergarten Readiness Overview
She was so sweet and emailed me back within the hour! Thankfully she gave me an overview of what they would assess for Kindergarten readiness:
- letter identification
- first sound identification
- number identification (in order and out of sequence)
- shape identification
- fine motor skills (writing his name)
- social interaction
- listening to a story
In addition to this info, and expressing excitement over us being a part of the district, she also attached a wonderful Kindergarten Readiness Checklist from United Way! Be sure to scroll down to learn more about our education options collection, and our back to school collection. Both of these collections can benefit families with students as they explore many additional free resources from both mothers and industry experts.

This collection is created to shed light and answer questions surrounding different types of schooling and education. We are not trying to compare, but rather give you insight into the differences. Each family will need to make their own decision regarding what works best for their child and family. There are no “right” answers. It is an individual decision that needs to be made based on your student’s individual needs, learning style, abilities, and resources.
Our goal of this Education Options collection is to allow you to dive a little deeper into the possibilities and opportunities around you!
