Testing for Kindergarten: Simple Strategies to Help Your Child Ace the Tests for: Public School Placement, Private School Admissions, Gifted Program Qualification
Karen Quinn


By the age of 5, most children in America will take some kind of intelligence test. 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 the ultimate guide to preparing your child for kindergarten testing. The activities she suggests are not about "teaching to the test." 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 the techniques that every parent can do with their kids to give them the best chance to succeed in school and beyond. It's just good parenting - and better test scores are icing on the cake.
