Based around three Big Experiences a day, Big Day for PreK offers students a comprehensive, integrated, and engaging curriculum that weaves literacy, science, math, and the arts together. Big Experiences provide integrated learning opportunities and introduce children to new vocabulary, concepts, and skills.
Big Day’s multi-tiered model revolves around eight relevant and child-friendly themes that broaden as the year progresses.
Weekly Big Ideas
Using these themes as an anchor, children are guided through four weeks of instruction on each theme. Each week is centered around a Big Idea designed to engage children.
Based on research demonstrating the importance of integrating social-emotional development into preschool curriculum, social skills are interwoven into every activity.
