The Indiana Department of Education is dedicated to informing and educating families about their child's education, including Indiana’s youngest learners. We recognize that families are a child's first and most important teacher, so please join us in sharing a new series called Mighty Moments. These Mighty Moments are suggestions that families can do at home to help support their child's development during daily routines. In each of these videos, we will offer suggestions for easy to implement activities for each one of the eight foundational content areas. These content areas include Social-Emotional Learning, Approaches to Play and Learning, English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Creative Arts, and Physical Health and Growth. Each of these foundational content areas is essential to a child's overall development, and over the next few months IDOE intends to offer suggestions for each of them. We hope these learning opportunities are easy to implement, with lasting effects for all of our Hoosier early learners. If you’re an early educator consider using these as a tool to provide to families as you work on a particular skill in the classroom. They could supplement student learning at home and provide families who may not have seen them a solid example of how to bring learning into the home and supplement your teaching.
