    ReadyRosie Launch: Brings free early education resources to families 

    The Tennessee Department of Education (TDOE) and the Governor’s Early Literacy Foundation (GELF) partnered with ReadyRosie to bring free early education resources to families.

    ReadyRosie is an early education online platform that provides short videos and free resources with simple, engaging activities for Tennessee families and children, ages birth through 3rd grade, to do at home. Through this partnership, all families with school-aged children in Tennessee will have access to ReadyRosie Modeled Moment videos, which equips them with simple and fun activities to help their children learn while at home. 
     
    Around two minutes long in both English and Spanish, the video “moments” feature real families demonstrating instructional activities that parents can then replicate with their own children and are rooted in learning goals for children on topics such as literacy, early math, health and well-being.  
     
    The ReadyRosie platform will be available for Tennessee families from April 1 through September 1. Families can easily register for free today here, and can sign up to receive weekly text messages or emails with curated playlists of activities. 
     
    For more information about ReadyRosie, visit the website and watch this video. Tennessee parents can register for free here
