® for Preschool is a comprehensive, research-based curriculum that features exploration and discovery as a way of learning. The curriculum includes The Foundation—six knowledge-building volumes that help teachers set up a high-quality learning environment and build a thorough understanding of best practices—and Daily Resources, which offer step-by-step guidance in the form of Teaching Guides and additional daily teaching tools that help teachers plan for children’s development and learning each day. The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool is fully aligned with the Head Start Child Development and Early Learning Framework and state early learning standards.
Using exploration and discovery as a way of learning, The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool enables children to develop confidence, creativity, and lifelong critical-thinking skills. When teachers use The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool, adding the Expanded Daily Resources gives them even more options for engaging children in project-based investigations.
The Expanded Daily Resources include the following:
5 new Teaching Guides: Simple Machines, Insects, Tubes and Tunnels, Signs, and Sand
50 new Intentional Teaching Cards™
25 new children’s books with 15 new Book Discussion Cards™
A new 5-part nonfiction book series to correspond with the new Teaching Guides
More Mighty Minutes® with 100 new activities
Highlights High Five Bilingüe™—set of 10 issues with corresponding Book Conversation Cards™ (includes an additional set of Highlights High Five Bilingüe™ to share with families)
NOTE: Implementing the Expanded Daily Resources requires resources from The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool.
