Prekindergarten English Language Arts: Listening and Learning Strand

NOTE: Core Knowledge has developed a prekindergarten curriculum aligned to the Prekindergarten Foundation for the Common Core.

The Listening and Learning Strand consists of a series of read‐alouds organized by topics (called domains), many of which are informational in nature. The goal of the Listening and Learning Strand is for students to acquire language competence through listening, specifically building a rich vocabulary, and broad knowledge in history and science by being exposed to carefully selected, sequenced, and coherent read‐alouds.
