Kindergartners are receiving more and more homework from school and are expected to know a certain set of sight words upon entering Kindergarten. The academic requirements for reading preparation now begin in Kindergarten. No longer do kindergartners play most of the day, instead they are required to do school work. This new academic outlook is surprising to some parents. Are we helping our children to develop academically or our we creating a wider gap in academic success? Does learning to read in Kindergarten help prepare you for 1st and 2nd grade literacy or are we creating a pool of 2nd and 3rd graders who don't meet the new standards? Our guest speaker the Director of Georgia Education Consulting will be here today to discuss that with you. Stay tuned
We will be discussing the pros and cons of kindergarten redshirting, a trend in which parents choose to not enroll their children in kindergarten until they have turned six years old. We'll also explore the meaning of school readiness in an interview with preschool teacher Joan Rehak.

This month Debi and Elissa are sharing some ideas on Summer Survival with preschoolers. Our "no fail idea" - in our opinion - is preparation and we will give suggestions on how to put together a Summer Survival Bag that is kept in the car ready for stops in a park or unplanned long waits in a doctor’s office. No need to purchase new apps or games - just a little creative thinking on your part. This Productive Play will focus on ways to use the time in the car going to and from activities, going on long car trips, or waiting for a sibling to finish up a soccer practice as fun learning opportunities.
Debi Dutton and Elissa Sungar are co-founders of If Not You Who.org - a free website geared to make sure your child is ready for kindergarten. With over 300 activities for making your playtime productive, these two educators make learning time with your kids playful.
Join us for Productive Play on May 20th at 10amPT/1pmET and anytime in archive. Today's show is sponsored by Safety Bags, LLC and Everything Family.net. Meet them and all our sponsors in our Mompreneur Marketplace.
