It's All About the GELDS!

Georgia Early Learning & Development Standards also known as GELDS have finally been made available for the upcoming school year. I am so excited to share with you these new standards that are aligned with the Common Core Standards for grades K-12. GELDS will take the place of the Content Standards that we PK teachers in Georgia have used for years. They were great standards, but this is much better. I have taken the time to compile these standards into an easy checklist for PK teachers. The checklists are color-coded to match the GELDS, which you can access from the Bright from the Start website. Also, I have divided them into fall/spring, months/weeks so that it will be easy for you to use when you are creating your lesson plans, differentiating instruction, preparing for a conference and the like. Also, there is a sheet for "teacher's notes" that you can print on the back of each checklist to help you remember important dates, concerns and so forth. I know that Georgia's PK teachers are ready and excited about using these new standards. I hope that this checklist will make it easier for PK teachers public or private in Georgia or out of state to plan and implement instruction. Click "checklist" to visit my TpT store.
