Curriculum

Houghton Mifflin Pre-K

The Houghton Mifflin Pre-K is a hands -on, minds-on curriculum that is developmentally appropriate and based on scientific research. It provides children with foundational skills in oral language, vocabulary development, phonological awareness, letter knowledge, and concept development. Houghton Miffllin Pre-K gives children numerous opportunities to build lanugage and literacy skills throughout the preschool day through activities such as big book read alouds, chants, rhymes, music and movement, dramatic play, and Alpha Friends songs. Targeted skills are embedded into cirlce times and center activities.

Hampton-Brown Avenues

The N-MUSD Preschools implement the Hampton-Brown Avenues Pre-K English Language Development Program to provide developmentally-appropriate, systematic support for oral language development of children who have a first language other than English. Each Avenues Pre-K unit promotes concepts, vocabulary, language function, and language pattern with songs, chants, big books, and Lizzie the Language Lizard puppet.
