The State Board of Education voted to approve 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 criteria of quality included in the prekindergarten systems rubric used during TRR’s quality review.
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 Start-Up Guide breaks down how each component is organized and what you need to know to start your implementation.
The research-based CIRCLE Pre-K Curriculum is now freely available to all prekindergarten programs through CLI Engage access. Simply follow the steps in our how-to guide!
