Getting Ready Guides
As part of Georgia Home Classroom, the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) has identified key skills for children getting ready for kindergarten through fifth 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.
