Scope and Sequence in education is the process in which the curriculum is translated into a series of lessons and activities that make sense in terms of content and learning development. Scope and Sequence will reflect what a curriculum emphasizes, be it integrated or experiential learning or a disconnected topic-based approach. In preschool and elementary school, scope and sequence should reflect what we know about child development, how children learn (never at the same pace) and the careful sequencing of skills and content that logically flow from one to the other.
The ScienceStart! curriculum includes materials that fully satisfy Head Start requirements to document Scope and Sequence as well as meets and exceeds the preschool curriculum standards proposed by states and professional associations.
ScienceStart!’s curriculum Scope and Sequence information covering Math, Science Content and Skills, Print Awareness and Phonemic, Phonological and Alphabetic Awareness are explained in the various pages below.
