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