Communication Skills needed for Pre-K

Let's work on communication skills! There is a wide range of what's considered an appropriate level of communication for three-to five-year-olds. The following checklist will, however, give you an idea of what most Pre-K programs hope their students will be able to do.

- Answer"yes/no" questions

- Respond when their name is called

- Verbalize basic wants and needs

- Name common objects

- Use action words to talk about what's going on

- Listen and respond when someone talks to them

- Follow simple directions

- Speak in short three-to four-word sentences

- Answer "who," "what," "where" questions

- Speak clearly enough that familiar adults can usually understand them

Regardless of your child's current skill level, the following tips will show you how you can help improve your child's communication skills.
