Implementation Guides

These Implementation Guides are modeled after the Ohio Departments of Education’s Implementation Guides, but include activities specifically designed for storytimes.  The guides break down each kindergarten readiness domain into strands and topics. Within each topic, there is an age breakdown for infants, young toddlers, older toddlers and preschoolers with strategies to support that strand and topic.
