Kindergarten Readiness Activity Series

Kindergarten Readiness Home Activity Series

You can prepare your 4- or 5-year-old child for kindergarten success by practicing the necessary skills at home, and Spike’s Place is here to help! Every month, stories, songs, and tips will be posted on this page, and activity kits will be available to pick up while supplies last. These activities will help your child practice skills recommended by the Stow-Munroe Falls City School District. Glue, crayons, and scissors will be needed to complete the activities each month. If you do not own those items, starter kits that include these additional supplies are available upon request. Please be kind and take one starter kit per family, as supplies are limited.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
