Visit iTRAILS.org for Kingergarten Prep

by |

iTRAILS.org is a new initiative of Metro Nashville Public Schools to help your preschooler follow the pathway to kindergarten readiness.

You can get a jump start on getting your preschooler (ages 3 – 5) ready for kindergarten thanks to a new site from Metro Nashville Public Schools. At iTRAILS.org, you can access PreK lesson plans that will help you teach your little one a variety of things like colors, letters, numbers, shapes, animals, rhyming, feelings, emotions, writing and more. Although the site isn’t meant to replace a formal PreK program, it does aid parents in getting their children ready for the kindergarten classroom, and it’s helpful for homeschool families. There’s a specific section on the site just for kids, too. There are four distinct portals they can enter: The NPT hub lets them play games and watch shows; click on the Nashville Public Library icon to experience talking picture books and “paint” pictures; the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences offers printable coloring pages, stories, games and songs; and the Children’s Kindness Network lets kids play games with Moozie the cow. It’s all free. Just log on to iTRAILS.org to sign up.
