When a student is prepared for kindergarten there are several skills that are often present as far as reading goes. They should be able to recognize and even read their name. Hopefully, they know their alphabet and can recite it from memory. They may know some sound that letters make, but not all. They can easily hear a rhythm whether it be in a song or a voiced sentence. Students that are ready understand that they should read a cover of a book from right to left. They also inheritably understand that everything should be observed from the top to the bottom. Ready kindergarteners can almost always retell their favorite story that they heard or saw. Many times, a student is lacking in a few of these qualities and that is not an alarm, but a subtle caution that they may need more time to develop their skills.

This is a critical skill that follows people all the way through life. Parents need to realize the importance of this year and do everything in their power to support the teachers' effort in the classroom. Reading is a lifelong skill that is often overlooked in a society that is dominated by 140 character thoughts from random people with some level of fame.
