During the Spring of 2011, the Early Childhood Committee of Easton Public Schools, aligned the preschool and kindergarten curriculum with the newly released Common Core Learning Standards. The Common Core Learning Standards are written by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and provides learning benchmarks for grades pre-K-12.
During the 2011-12 school year, the preschool teachers worked on their curriculum to align it with the Common Core Learning Standards. Our theme based curriculum aligned with the common core standards in reading/writing and mathematics are incorporated into our activities throughout the preschooler's day.
Curriculum that we currently are using:
- Everyday Mathematics Pre-K
- Handwriting without Tears Pre-K Curriculum
- The Incredible Flexible You - A Social Thinking Curriculum for the preschool and early elementary years
