GA Lottery Funded Pre-K
The five knowledge building curriculum volumes explain the latest theory and research, ways to support active learning and promote children's progress, and how to set up a successful program. They offer the comprehensive knowledge base that teachers need for preparing all children to succeed in school and in life.
Volume 1: The Foundation presents the theory and research behind the curriculum and translates them into practice. It discusses the five components of teaching preschool children effectively: how children develop and learn, the learning environment, what children learn, caring and teaching, and partnering with families.
Volume 2: Interest Areas discusses the 10 classroom interest areas and the outdoors. It suggests appropriate materials, explains what children learn in each area, and presents ways to promote their development.
Volume 3: Literacy explains the seven components of literacy and gives teachers the latest research-based strategies for supporting early literacy learning. It helps them teach critical skills intentionally and incorporate language and literacy learning into everyday classroom experiences.
Volume 4: Mathematics discusses the latest theories and research on the development of mathematical thinking. It gives teachers practical strategies for incorporating mathematics learning into each interest area as well as everyday routines and experiences.
Volume 5: Objectives for Development & Learning discusses the 38 objectives for development and learning. It offers a detailed explanation of each objective and the research behind it; user-friendly, color-coded progressions of development and learning that show widely held expectations for children birth through kindergarten; and strategies to help children progress.
