As part of Georgia Home Classroom, the Georgia Department of Education (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. The guides are available in English and Spanish.

The “Getting Ready” video lessons below feature K-5 Georgia teachers breaking down the skills on the Getting Ready Guides while suggesting practical tips for out-of-school learning. They provide insights from “what they see” as students come back to school in August. A primary goal of the videos is to support families and summer educators in preparing for the upcoming school year.
