ASHEBORO – Children who are entering kindergarten this fall, but who have not attended preschool, will have a chance to prepare for their new school experience in “1, 2, 3. A, B, C. Let’s Get Ready for Kindergarten!” this summer at the Asheboro Public Library.
The free, seven-week program, which will meet from 10-11 a.m. Wednesdays from June 6-July 25, will focus on the basics kids need to be successful in kindergarten. Participants will learn about letters, numbers and shapes as well as important behavioral skills such as taking turns, walking in line and sharing.
Participants also will develop their fine motor skills as they learn to use scissors and pencils.
Parents will receive a checklist of activities they can work on with their children during the weeks before school starts.
Registration is required; call 336-318-6804 to sign up or for more information, or visit the Children’s Room. The library is located at 201 Worth Street.
“1, 2, 3. A, B, C. Let’s Get Ready for Kindergarten!” is part of “Libraries Rock,” the Randolph County Public Library’s Summer Reading Program.
