Learning List recently reviewed eBook resources for McGraw Hill’s DLM Early Childhood Express. The comprehensive program builds the knowledge and skills pre-K students need in order to successfully transition to Kindergarten. Resources are available in print and eBook formats and support instruction in blended learning environments. The holistic program addresses the social-emotional, academic, and physical learning needs of pre-K students. Instruction may be paced for half-day and full-day pre-K programs.
DLM Early Childhood Express is a holistic program that addresses social and emotional skills; oral language and vocabulary development; phonological awareness; letter names, sounds, and formation; writing skills; math, social studies, science content; fine arts, technology, and physical education. Content is organized in units that focus on a particular interdisciplinary theme (e.g., “Amazing Animals”). Each day’s instruction incorporates predictable routines, including start-of-the-day and end-of-the-day activities, learning centers, and whole group “Circle Time” experiences. Daily activities incorporate read alouds, music, art, and storytelling.
Math and science concepts are addressed in the “Math and Science Flip Chart” and in learning center activities. Math learning center resources include “Building Blocks,” which are early education math learning activities and games. The “Making Good Choices Flip Chart” contains illustrations and discussion prompts that address social and emotional skills (e.g., “How can I get others to play with me?”). eBooks present images with associated text (e.g., an elephant; “This animal is big.”) and have audio readers and annotation and highlighting tools.
