Starting kindergarten is a major milestone in the lives of young children (and their parents!)
Kindergarten represents a big jump into the unknown that, while exciting, can also cause nervous anticipation for everyone involved. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be scary!
Today’s complex, technology-driven world is changing rapidly. As it does, what our children need to know when they enter kindergarten is changing as well, requiring a new and improved set of school-readiness skills – called “QI Skills” (pronounced key) – that will give them the foundation and confidence to succeed. In this fun and engaging story, bestselling authors Julia Cook and Laura A. Jana bring to life for children, parents and educators the important connection that exists between everyday behaviors and the development of valuable, 21st century life-skills during early childhood. This book includes creative, practical tips to help readers implement these skills at home and in the classroom.
Follow Roo as he figures out how to use and apply his amazing QI Skills: ME, WE, WHY, WILL, WIGGLE, WOBBLE and WHAT IF!
I love to move around and explore,
so my favorite skill is WIGGLE.
I can jump into things,
and reach for the stars,
and bend and stretch and jiggle!
With a backpack full of “super cool” skills and a head full of questions, Roo is excited to jump into kindergarten, and your children will be too!
