Readiness for school (part 1)

“Hooray! Soon to school! ”So I want this slogan to pay off, and the child would love to go to school and do homework with interest, be successful and get good grades. But for many children and parents, school is becoming a difficult period. How to avoid this? There is only one answer, but it is both simple and complex –
prepare the child for school activities in advance so that the school becomes for him a joyful, memorable event in life that laid the foundations for further personal and professional formation. But even a few months before school, if necessary, you can adjust something and help the future first-grader calmly and joyfully enter the new world.

The child’s readiness for school is determined by the combination of his general, intellectual and psychological preparation. Psychological readiness for school is like a bigfoot. Everyone heard about her. Everyone knows that this is some important thing that psychologists check with some tricky tests. Every now and then they talk about her in cool schools and gymnasiums, but no one really knows what it is. Psychological readiness for school does not arise in children by itself, but is formed gradually and requires special classes with the child; it is necessary to form the necessary and sufficient level of the child’s psychological development for mastering the school curriculum under certain educational conditions.

The psychological readiness of the child for schooling is one of the most important results of psychological development during the period of preschool childhood.

We live in the 21st century and now the very high demands of life on the organization of upbringing and training make us look for new, more effective psychological and pedagogical approaches aimed at bringing teaching methods in line with the requirements of life. In this sense, the problem of the readiness of preschoolers to study at school is of particular importance.

Many parents consider the main indicator of the child’s readiness for school the breadth of knowledge that he acquired during childhood and the child’s ability to read and count. This is undoubtedly very important, but not enough! Readiness for schooling, or school maturity, includes the achievement of a certain level of intellectual, emotional, motivational and physical development.
