Preschool Plus

Start with Great Read–Alouds
Preschool Plus is a precursor to our Lightning Lit program. Enhance your childrens’ enjoyment of stories by reading these classics with them. Combined with hands–on activities from The Instant Curriculum assigned in our Preschool Plus Teacher’s Manual, students gently learn language–arts skills which are also tied into other curriculum areas, such as math, geography, art, and music. We do offer these two books in a Preschool Plus Pack at a discount.
