Summary
Whether your child is going to a private kindergarten or a public school, he or she will most likely be tested--and placed in classrooms according to those results. But information about intelligence tests is closely guarded, and it can be difficult to understand what your kids need to know. As an expert who has successfully taught hundreds of parents how to work with their own children, Karen Quinn has written this guide to activities for preparing your child for kindergarten testing. They are about having fun while teaching to the underlying abilities every test assesses. From the "right" way to have a conversation to natural ways to bring out your child's inner math geek, Quinn shares techniques that every parent can use to give their kids the best chance to succeed in school and beyond.--From publisher description
