Updated with the Revised 2015 Texas PreKindergarten Guidelines!
Design your preschool instruction to align with the Texas Education Agency’s prekindergarten guidelines and early childhood outcomes.
This document aligns each prekindergarten guideline to one or more of the three early childhood outcomes. In addition, it suggests appropriate goals and interventions for children with learning differences.
For each outcome, a developmental continuum suggests ways that teachers can develop appropriate goals for children who are developmentally functioning below four-year-old expectations. This continuum includes foundational skills that will lead to expected three-year-old and four-year-old skills. The foundational skills can be used to provide a direct link to the prekindergarten guidelines and function as a starting point for students who are furthest from age-appropriate skill levels when they enter Early Childhood Special Education Programs.
This connection of the developmental continuum of skills to the prekindergarten guidelines will help educators design developmentally appropriate, individualized goals for their youngest learners, including students with disabilities, students learning English as a second language, and any child who may be at risk educationally.
