Preschool Progress Checklist and Report.
This progress report and checklist can be used from ages 3 -5 years old. There are extra lines in each category to fill in the additional skills that your own unique child can do.
This list is not an exhaustive list, but gives a good indication of what developmental milestones your child should be able to do at these ages.
Colouring and working on pre-writing skills are extremely important activities. You will notice that there are no writing activities involved in the checklist, however some children can print their name between the ages of 4 and 5 years old.
Your goal is to have children develop these pre-school or pre-kindergarten skills through play.
Language and Reading
These sheets are great for hand-eye-coordination. It is a good way to introduce writing to preschoolers.
Children are curious, and their questions about life around them are unending. An answer often leads to the next question. This is why preschool science is such a vital part of their development because they are at a stage where they are ‘building the blocks’ for knowledge, information, and judgment.
A good preschool science program should help the child form their own opinions, rather than taking that of others as facts. It should help the child develop patience and perseverance. As the child discovers new things, a good science program should also open new possibilities of research, with great anticipation of new findings.
As a guide, help the preschooler
1. Explore materials, events, and objects
2. Ask questions and investigate them
3. Observe, describe and record observations
4. Identify patterns, and relationships
5. Work together (sharing, discussions, and ability to listen to team members)
Hope these worksheets are a great start to preschool discoveries.” – www.cleverlearner.com
