The first day of school can be daunting at any age, but especially for kindergarteners! They’re confronted with brand new challenges that older students (and parents) may take for granted—like getting on and off the bus, packing and zipping their backpack, and balancing their lunch tray
Thinkery’s Kindergarten Kickoff is a special daylong event dedicated to helping incoming kindergarten students practice the new skills they’ll need to start the school year right! Thinkery—along with some expert school-readiness partners—will present a series of fun activities that provide new students and caregivers the resources and practice to prepare for their first year of school.
Example activities include:
School Bus Hop: Hopping on and off a school bus with Austin ISD Transportation
Lunch Line Time: Practice with Austin ISD Nutrition & Food Services
Ready for Recess: Physical Activity Games such as Parachute Play
Story Time: Special Kindergarten themed stories with Austin ISD Library Media Services
Pop Up Parades: Practice walking in line while being cheered on by loved ones!
