More about Beyond the Backpack?
BeyondtheBackpack is a fantastic event that focuses solely on kindergarten readiness for both kids and their parents/caregivers. They do this by concentrating on five critical key areas: early literacy, health and wellness, STEM [Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math] skills, family engagement, and emotional/social development.
During the event on Saturday in Chicago, you will find great deals on school supplies, learn more about school essentials and have a fun afternoon playtime. Of course, the surprise visits from Shimmer and Shine characters and Dora the Explorer make this even over the top awesome!
If you were not able to make the event, you can log onto Beyond the backpack for a customized learning plan and download the Beyond the Backpack Tool Kit and oodles of skill building activities for you and your kids to do together. Even if you were able to make the event these tools will be just as helpful for you too.
