Kindergarten Readiness

To prepare for kindergarten, children need to be supported and nurtured in all areas of development. It is also important that your child is physically, socially and emotionally ready to participate in school. This list can serve as a guide as you and your child prepare for the exciting transition to kindergarten!

Please also see this handout sharing ideas to help your child prepare for kindergarten in the areas of math and reading.

In the spring prior to kindergarten, Marysville schools will provide optional screenings for incoming kindergarteners in early reading and math skills. This program will also provide resources and materials to families to help their children prepare for kindergarten. 

Kindergarten Readiness Assessment

The Kindergarten Readiness Assessment Revised (KRA-R) is a tool that teachers will use to get to know your child. It is not designed to rank children by ability, nor is it a tool for identifying students with disabilities or gifted students. This tool is primarily to help your teacher get to know your child in a way that does not interrupt the child’s learning.

Your child may not even be aware that the teacher is using this tool because most of the tool requires the teacher to watch the student during the natural course of the school day’s activities.

Don’t be alarmed if your child is not excelling in every area. Most children develop in spurts. They are ahead of their peers in some areas and behind in others. But remember, this tool is not designed to compare your child with other children, it is used to indicate how ready your child is for learning Ohio’s Learning Standards for kindergarten. All students will need support in some areas.

Third Grade Reading Guarantee

Ohio's Third Grade Reading Guarantee is a program to identify students from kindergarten through grade 3 who are behind in reading. Schools will provide help and support to make sure students are on track for reading success by the end of third grade. The Department provides policy guidance, instructional tools and resources on the Third Grade Reading Guarantee.

More Information about the Third Grade Reading Guarantee can be found on the Ohio Department of Education’s Website HERE.

ODE Instructional Video Series

The following videos are published by the Ohio Department of Education and are great examples of how we provide reading instruction and intervention in Marysville schools when teaching the following pillars of literacy:

An important component of structured literacy is explicit instruction, an instructional approach utilized within our district. The videos linked above are all explained through the lens of explicit instruction. If you are interested in learning more about this, please be sure to watch the “Multi Modal Approach to Structured Literacy” above.
