The Children’s Learning Institute prepared the following curriculum samples to support teachers to partner with families and deliver remote instruction, using the CIRCLE Pre-K Curriculum and CIRCLE Activity Collection: Pre-K to Grade 2 Classroom. There are two options available:
These remote lessons are from four weeks of the CIRCLE Pre-K Curriculum that were selected based on their ability to be adapted for remote instruction and learning. These activities can be flexibly used in a whole group or small group settings and at any time of the year. The 4-week sampler is also a good fit for delivering contingency learning plans. There is a corresponding Family Workbook and Toolkit available that complement skills learned in these remote lessons that families can use at home with their children (learn more below):
If you need access to more remote lessons, these are activities from weeks 1-10 of the CIRCLE Pre-K Curriculum Scope and Sequence that can be easily adapted to remote instruction and learning. Teachers can use these activities in a remote small group or large group settings. These remote lessons are flexibly designed for teachers to use any week or following the suggested scope and sequence. There is a corresponding Family Workbook and Toolkit available that complement skills learned in these remote lessons that families can use at home with their children (learn more below):
These Family Workbooks include activities for children to complete independently following a remote lesson from the Variety Sample Curriculum or Scope and Sequence Sample Curriculum with their teacher. The activities give children the opportunity to practice targeted skills and can help indicate their knowledge gained from lessons with minimal preparation and supervision. Families can also use the activities to engage with their child to continue supporting learning at home.
These Family Toolkits list suggested materials children will need at home to complete each remote lesson from the Variety Sample Curriculum, Family Workbook, and the Scope and Sequence Sample Curriculum. The suggested materials will help support and engage children with activities to increase understanding of concepts. Using manipulatives and hands-on materials naturally promote home learning experiences as children continually practice skills at home.
