Daniella is 3 1/2 years old. The beauty of homeschooling is that we can more easily teach her at her grade level. Due to her birthday being in October, technically she should be starting preschool tis coming year. However, we did Pre-K this past school year, adding in some Kindergarten level work for the last couple of months.
 
 
 
This coming school year, we will be doing Kindergarten with Daniella. She is so excited! As a parent tough, sometimes it's easy to wonder if you are "doing it right ". Have I really taught everything she needs to know to be ready for Kindergarten already? I don't want to push her if she isn't ready. 
 
 
 
The Lakeshore Learning Are You Ready? Game Show® game has shown me that she truly is ready! We have had to occasionally explain a question to her, but as soon as we do, she has ALWAYS  gotten the question right. Daniella has truly impressed me with this game!
 
 
 
The game sets up just like a real game show and the child gets to pick a category and how much money they want to earn if they answer correctly. There are three categories- Math, Language, and Challenge.
 
 
Daniella was super excited to earn $3 of play money to answer a question about an ABC pattern.
 
 
She loves it when Brandon says in his best game show host voice "Choose your category!". It makes her giggle as she selects.
 
 
 
 
 
Their cousin even wanted to check out the game!
 
 
 
 
In the front of the game stand, you can see how the used cards have a sorting area - Correctly Answered and Incorrectly Answered.
 
 
 
Here is three Language category cards, one from each dollar amount.
 
 
Here are the exact same three cards flipped over in the same order so that you an see some examples of the questions asked.
