Play K & Kindergarten Transition - NEW!
Making the transition into kindergarten a smooth one for children and families is one of the main goals of Cruise Libraries! Our new Play K curriculum is currently being used in libraries across the state to provide early learning experiences for children and families. You can now access the curriculum online (see below). Check back in September for an online course centered around the curriculum. This course is being designed as a refresher for those who attended the workshop or for training new staff.
Introducing the Cruise into Kindergarten Activity Cards!
These cards are designed for parents and caregivers to provide engaging learning activities that can be done with simple materials found around the home. Recommended books related to the learning activities and a rhyming fingerplay are included on each card. Sharing these books and activities will help make for a smooth transition into kindergarten!
Remember, the Cruise into Kindergarten Online Game for parents and caregivers has links to age appropriate sites and activities for children and adults to explore together, as well as tips and guidelines for media use!
