The On My Way to K with PBS Activity Calendar aligns to early childhood standards and complements our 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.
