All resources in Washington Early Learning
Teaching Strategies is also developing free resources through Ready Rosie™ that will include interviews with experts on how families can stay healthy and safe, how to support children’s emotional well-being during the pandemic, and some fun activities families can do at home that support learning and overall well-being. More information on these resources will be shared with you this week.

Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction created WaKIDS resources to support kindergarten families and teachers with remote learning including the Goal Planning and Reflection Sheet, Choice Boards, and Discussion Prompts, Look Fors, and Observational Activities. Kindergarten children are not yet able to manage their learning independently, so it will be important to establish goals together with the key adults who will help them engage in remote learning. The Goal Planning and Reflection Sheet is intended be co-created with the child, their parent/guardian and teacher during meeting times. The other resources assist families and teachers to identify learning activities that offer opportunities for observation and assessment of skills, knowledge, and behavior.

We would like to remind you of the Resources Library located within the Family area of the online platform, GOLD®. If you have added your student's family members and their emails to the online platform (if not see instructions below), you will be able to directly email families those activities that are based on the areas of development for your students. These activities are intended to be shared and are therefore, family friendly. Take some time to explore the Family area in GOLD® and consider using these lessons as a way to support your remote learning plan.
