The State Board of Education voted to approve the adoption of the CIRCLE Pre-K Curriculum in November 2020. Evaluation by the Texas Resource Review (TRR) found the curriculum fully addresses all Texas Prekindergarten Guidelines. High scores were awarded for each criterion of quality included in the prekindergarten systems rubric used during TRR’s quality review.
The CIRCLE Pre-K Curriculum is also available in a national version aligned to the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework (ELOF). For large state adoptions, alignment crosswalks may be provided for your state’s prekindergarten guidelines/outcomes. For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Available in English and Spanish, the CIRCLE Pre-K Curriculum includes Scope and Sequences for 35 weeks of instruction and 10 Theme Guides for use throughout the school year. Each of these components is supported by direct links to high-quality lessons housed in the CIRCLE Activity Collection. You can use the Scope and Sequences and Theme Guides together to provide weekly instruction that comprehensively supports the cognitive, social, and emotional development of prekindergarten children. Additionally, the Teacher’s Manual specifies how each component is organized, the research used to develop the curriculum, provides support to get started with implementation, and a wealth of other information and resources.
