"You don't ask a child if they want to walk or be carried,
you ask them if they want to walk on the grass or the sidewalk."

Online Kindergarten Readiness Screening Tool
http://www.familyeducation.com/article/0,1120,63-25466,00.html
This tool is designed for four-year-olds. Screen your child twice while she's four. Try to screen your child first in the fall a year before entering kindergarten, and again before kindergarten starts to measure your child's progress. Don't use the tool more than three times a year. It's not designed to measure small changes, and kids develop new skills gradually.

Ever wonder what the Vikings ate when they set off to explore the new world? What the pioneers cooked along the Oregon Trail? Who invented the potato chip...and why? Food is the fun part of social studies! The tricky part is finding recipes you can make in a modern kitchen, with ingredients bought at your local supermarket and bring into school to share with your class.
