Each week of instruction in our curriculum for preschoolers is neatly organized into a 10-page section of activity choices. The first page of these sections offers an overview of the week’s theme, the Wonderful Word of the Week, the Week at a Glance, a list of materials to gather, and things to make and do in preparation for the week’s activities.
Materials are divided into two categories and listed at point-of-use in the guides: Program Materials and Supplies to Gather. The materials are organized by categories so you can plan ahead and ask families to save, collect, and donate items throughout the year.
