The Summer Before Kindergarten- Author Conversation With Ashlie Buresh and Emily Hankins

In Episode 15, of Rockin’ This Teacher Thing…


“What can I do to make sure my child is ready for kindergarten?” It's a question every kindergarten teacher has heard hundreds of times. Now more than ever parents want to make sure that their child is ready for kindergarten.

 The standard response involves reassurance and the suggestion of daily reading.  But what if there was a parent friendly resource that would engage the up and coming kindergartner? Today we talk with Ashlie Buresh and Emily Hankins about their book “The Summer Before Kindergarten.” This teacher made and tested book is packed full of activities that will give parents a fun and easy format to help their child enter kindergarten with the skills they need for success.  No worksheets, no complicated directions, just simple fun activities developed by kindergarten teachers to answer the question, “What can I do to make sure my child is ready for kindergarten?”
