On My Way to K with PBS KIDS Weekly Activity Calendars

The On My Way to K with PBS KIDS Weekly Calendar features fun enrichment activities that take no more than 15-20 minutes and will help prepare children for kindergarten! Each week includes short videos, interactive games, and some hands-on exploration.

How to Use:

  1. Review activities for the week and gather the materials listed in the handout.
  2. Set aside 15-20 minutes of learning time each day.
  3. Do the daily activity with children use accompanying discussion questions and vocabulary.
  4. Have FUN!

The On My Way to K with PBS Activity Calendar aligns to early childhood standards and complements the On My Way to K Toolkit, but can also be used on its own. The resource provides a whole child approach, understanding that learning is more than cognitive, and includes opportunities for critical thinking, social, emotional, emotional, physical, arts, communication, and collaborative growth. The On My Way to K with PBS KIDS Toolkit and Activity Calendars were developed by WUCF in Florida and WOSU in Ohio.
