The transition to kindergarten can be tough on kids. Researcher Katherine Pears, PhD, says parents and teachers can use a summer program intervention, KITS, to get kids ready.  For teachers, KITS techniques, such as thanking in advance, has made teaching easier. Parents were also benefiting from KITS. Kids who took part in the KITS intervention during the summer were found to have better literacy skills compared to the group that did not receive the KITS intervention, according to their teachers. Teachers also reported KITS kids as having better self-regulation skills at the end of kindergarten.
