Ready Rosie! Free tool for parents to teach kids this summer

The Tennessee Department of Education and the Governor’s Early Literacy Foundation are teaming up to make sure parents have the tools they need to help educate their children.

ReadyRosie is an online education tool featuring instructional activities that parents can do with their children at home to turn everyday experiences into learning opportunities all summer long.

“I think this is a really significant resource,” said James Pond, president of the Governor’s Early Literacy Foundation. “The reason is, with the unexpected outage of school, we’re looking at children that would normally just be having summertime off of school. Now we’re looking at students who will potentially be out of school for upwards of six months and that contributes to a significant learning loss.”

Each program is 10 to 15 minutes long.

Tennessee Education Commissioner Penny Schwinn told News Channel 11 it’s designed with parents in mind.

It’s really for the parent. The parent is able to figure out how does it work within his or her schedule or life.

ReadyRosie is free and available through September 30th.
