Dinosaur Train Helps You Get Ready for Kindergarten Month!

Hey All!

August is “Get Ready for Kindergarten Month,” and new back-to-school products and online educational activities from the hit preschool brand, Dinosaur Train, can help you and your children to be prepared!

Transitioning to Kindergarten can be a stressful time for young children as they take on a new role as “student”—in addition to other changes such as new surroundings, routines and expectations, and in some cases being away from parents for the first time.

There are many things, however, that can be done to help prepare children for this big transition and a familiarity with some key skills will be beneficial. The Jim Henson Company and PBS KIDS have included some fun ideas from the award-winning Dinosaur Train website at www.pbskids.org/dinosaurtrain that will help children familiarize themselves with and build upon some specific skills, while at the same time enjoying their favorite characters!

Practice reading and speaking. Help your child practice the letters of the alphabet while learning, speaking and singing about the diversity of dinosaurs that once lived on Earth with the “Dinosaurs A – Z song.” Have fun learning about letters, and dinosaurs at: http://www.pbs.org/parents/dinosaurtrain/activities/handson/dinosaursatoz.html.

Another thing you need is some great clothing for your child for their first day. Make it a great event and day with DINOSAUR TRAIN APPAREL from Kids with Character! This clothing is so well made and your kids will love it. Each set comes with a shirt and pants. It’s a great Value for how amazing these clothes are.

Dinosaur Train’s summer line shirts and pants/shorts sets are PERFECT for back to school. Look for NEW Dinosaur Train apparel coming in August and September at Kohls and Kmart. I’m sure they will be super cheap as well. I highly recommend them as a great way for your child to prepare for his first day of Kindergarten.

Get ready for an all-new season of Dinosaur Train this August with “Dinosaur Big City” which premieres on PBS Kids on August 22; and the DVD release of Dinosaur Train: Dinosaur Big City on August 23 (SRP: $14.99). From the world-renowned Jim Henson Company, Dinosaur Train is seen in over 13 million households every month and embraces and celebrates preschoolers’ fascination with both dinosaurs and trains. The series encourages scientific thinking and other skills as it teaches viewers about natural science, natural history and paleontology.
