In order to serve educators and families during the COVID-19 crisis, ReadyRosie developed this free toolkit as a resource to support families with information and resources for supporting the children in their care. The current content on this site will be available throughout the summer. We invite educators to explore ReadyRosie’s complete family engagement platform to help schools and programs partner with families throughout the summer and into the new school year.

Simple Machines and Building

Simple machines are everywhere! Look at examples in your home (screw, pulley, wheel and axle, lever, wedge and inclined plane) and talk about how they help us. Can you go on a simple machine hunt around your house or neighborhood? Take pictures or make drawings of the simple machines you find!

How can we help?

When children feel like they are an important part of a community, they are more secure and confident to explore. Talk about your family as a community. What can family members do to help each other feel loved and appreciated? Celebrate as you help each other out and encourage your child to find ways to help throughout the day!

Water Play

Most children love to play with water! The sounds it makes, the way it feels, the way it changes from ice to water to steam, and the way it moves is fascinating! Find ways for your child to explore and experiment with water throughout the day. Invite your child to describe observations.
