Currículo

El currículo está alineado con el Marco de Head Start sobre los resultados del aprendizaje temprano de los niños (ELOF, sigla en inglés). Alinear un currículo con el ELOF determina el grado en que los dominios y subdominios del ELOF se abordan en el currículo. Los currículos que están totalmente alineados con el ELOF son integrales y abarcan todas las áreas de aprendizaje y desarrollo de los niños descritas en el ELOF.

Alignment with the ELOF: A thorough review of all the curriculum materials in relation to the ELOF domains and sub-domains indicates that InvestiGator PreK is mostly aligned with the ELOF. The learning experiences described in the Teacher Guides support children across the majority of ELOF sub-domains, and the Learning Centers (e.g., Reading, Math, Technology) also provide opportunities for children to practice domain-specific skills. Even so, Relationships with Adults, Relationships with Other Children, and Emotional Functioning are not fully covered within InvestiGator PreK. However, the publisher offers a separate Social and Emotional Development Kit for an additional cost or as part of the Just for Threes curriculum. The addition of these materials fully addresses Relationships with Other Children and Emotional Functioning. Additionally, the sub-domain Operations and Algebraic Thinking is not fully covered. While there are suggested learning experiences to support children's understanding of simple patterns, the curriculum lacks support for developing children's understanding of addition and subtraction.

Alignment with the ELOF: A thorough review of all curriculum materials in relation to the ELOF domains and sub-domains indicates that Tools of the Mind® is mostly aligned with the ELOF. The majority of ELOF sub-domains are supported throughout the curriculum's sequence of games and activities described in the Training Manual. For example, the curriculum's Make-Believe Play and Story Lab literacy activities support children's development in areas such as cognitive self-regulation, oral language skills, literacy skills, and creativity. The curriculum partially addresses the ELOF sub-domain of Reasoning and Problem-Solving. In most science activities, children learn to observe, classify, and describe their observations, but there are fewer opportunities for children to plan and conduct investigations and experiments. The curriculum also does not address the sub-domain of Health, Safety, and Nutrition.
