The Pre-K curriculum is divided into themed units that last 2-4 weeks. Stories and vocabulary words are aligned to the units. Letter identification and letter sounds are ongoing Language Arts skills. Number and shape identification and counting are ongoing math skills.
Aside from weekly Language Arts and Math objectives, we also have Science / Social studies and Phonemic Awareness lessons in each unit. The Pre-K units and learning objectives are listed below.
