Literature-Based Pre-K Curriculum
Hello parents and educators!
I have begun working on a pre-k curriculum that is literature-based. I would love to hear what you would like to see in a new curriculum for young children. I am a pre-k teacher and know what I feel my current curriculum is lacking. Most of it is centered around a lack of connection to literature.
I feel that it is very important to design literature-based activities that promote projects and experiences across the curriculum. The students who come through my classroom are almost always drawn to books and stories. They often create their own work and connect it to something that we have read. This is why I believe that a literature-based curriculum would be more engaging for the students.
Now I have a favor to ask. As parents and/or teachers, what do you want to see available in the early childhood classrooms? What will help the students as they advance into elementary school? What would really work in the classroom (as we all know budgets are tight). What kind of resources are easily available that curriculums should consider during the design process? Please leave your comments below. I truly value your opinion in this matter as I want this curriculum to be very high quality.
Thanks for your time.
PS: You will find some lesson plans on my other hubs. I am designing these for the my curriculum, but with much more detail, including small group activities, printable activities, and assessment suggestions and materials.
