The school year may look a little different this year, but it's still right around the corner. With the remaining days of summer break, it is important for kids to remember what they have learned and prepare for the upcoming school year. GPB Education and the Georgia Department of Education have collaborated to offer "Getting Ready" guides for kids going into K-3. 

GaDOE has identified key skills for children getting ready for kindergarten through third grade. These skills will help families understand what children have already learned and can expect to  learn when they get back to school. They include physical health and wellness, language arts, math, social studies, and science – staying active, making friends, reading, playing with numbers, and exploring your world.

These skills and guidance are meant to help, but are not required. When children return to school, teachers will be excited to meet them where they are and will identify areas of strength and areas of growth.
