Preschool

Read-Alouds

In an effort to support preschool families we have created fun, engaging curriculum units. These lessons, which align with Early Childhood Development, are designed to foster a love and joy of literacy. They engage the child with the arc of a narrative storyline and play and multi-sensory activities extend that storyline at home. 

Units are divided into five lessons. The lessons are designed to be completed once daily. They consist of a few videos and daily challenges that will keep your pre-k kid busy and learning!  These lessons can be completed in any order and challenges range from independent coloring activities to hands on activities that will require adult assistance. 

Thank you to Lauren Tamiso for her dedication to preschool students and their families and for creating this wonderful content. Thanks also go to Laurie Cousseau for her guidance and expertise.

Preschool Professional Development

If you weren't able to attend one of our recent virtual preschool workshops, no worries, we've recorded them! 

I just wanted to thank you for the workshop yesterday! It was really terrific. I was able to watch and another teacher or two from our school were as well, but I also shared how wonderful it was with the other teachers. Thank you for this resource! Especially now - when we are all looking for a little bit of a boost.
