Parents Guide to "Prekindergarten" Instruction
Department of Defense Education Activity
The Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) is committed to providing the highest quality of education to its students. One way to provide a quality education is with an effective curriculum that reflects high standards and expectations. Thus, DoDEA has developed rigorous content standards aligned with national guidelines and standards. But even the most rigorous standards cannot make schools and students successful without the support of parents. This booklet is designed to inform you, parents, of DoDEA's expectations for students in the four major curriculum areas-reading/language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies-at the prekindergarten level. These expectations are aligned with the prekindergarten curriculum that is used by the classroom teacher for daily instruction. The booklet also provides examples of what your child is learning in the classroom, and what he or she should know and be able to accomplish upon exiting prekindergarten. In addition, it provides suggestions and tips on how you can help your child at home. Resources for children are appended.
