This document was created by staff from the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction and the nine Educational Service Districts as a resource to educators across the earliest years of school, PreK–3rd grade. It is intended to support a smooth transition this fall for students who are just beginning their formal education or who may have experienced disruptions to their early education due to COVID-19
Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction created WaKIDS resources to support kindergarten families and teachers with remote learning including the Goal Planning and Reflection Sheet, Choice Boards, and Discussion Prompts, Look Fors, and Observational Activities. Kindergarten children are not yet able to manage their learning independently, so it will be important to establish goals together with the key adults who will help them engage in remote learning. The Goal Planning and Reflection Sheet is intended be co-created with the child, their parent/guardian and teacher during meeting times. The other resources assist families and teachers to identify learning activities that offer opportunities for observation and assessment of skills, knowledge, and behavior.
This document outlines the roles for the following participants in WaKIDS: District Assessment Coordinators, Teachers, Principals/Admi, District WaKIDS Support Staff, and Curriculum Directors. Additionally, you can see how the OSPI, ESD WaKIDS Coordinators, and Teaching Strategies can offer technical assistance.
