Provo City School District is interested in alleviating any unnecessary stress to individuals with disabilities. When students with disabilities are beginning school for the first time in a Provo school, they and their parents are encouraged to visit the school to identify barriers, which may require adaptations to accommodate their needs.

Things you can do to prepare your student for kindergarten

- Help motivate your child by sharing your positive thoughts about the exciting changes ahead. Be confident and supportive to help your child feel less nervous.
- Use numbers: play counting games, compare ages, keep score, measure things-time, sizes amounts.
- Read books together. Talk about the story and pictures to help our child learn language.
- Play with ABC’s, find letters in signs, practice writing letters, ask how letters sound, make words with blocks.
- Do art projects. Give your child markers, paints, paper, paste and other supplies to use. Display the results!
- Encourage free play. This helps build your child’s imagination and problem-solving skills.
- Make play dates with your child’s future schoolmates. It can help to get friendships started early.
- Encourage helpful habits: set a regular time to pick up playthings, stick to a schedule, practice following directions.
- Promote a love of reading: read aloud with your child, ask questions about the stories, set aside a quiet reading time, turn off the TV and other distractions, have books available in your home, to to the library often.
- Discuss any fears and encourage discussion. Let your child talk to you about his or her fears or feelings. Be reassuring and tell your child that you everything will be fine. Do all you can to help your child feel happy and confident about school. Keep a positive attitude. If you look forward to the first day of school, your child will probably do the same.
