and Kodo Kids Together.
Teaching Strategies® has partnered with Kodo Kids to create unique collections of high-quality materials to support and elevate your classroom experiences. Kodo Interest Area and General Classroom collections support teachers to effectively implement The Creative Curriculum® and energize children’s hands-on investigative learning.
The Creative Curriculum® Kits
Our newly updated, specially-designed collection of educational materials, created in partnership with Hatch Early Learning, helps support the implementation of The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool and The Creative Curriculum® for Infants, Toddlers & Twos. These preselected assortments of rich, interactive materials are organized into individual kits that focus on supporting one specific area of development or type of experience. This allows teachers to choose which kits would best enhance their classroom experiences based on their own individual needs.
Our preassembled curriculum kits save you valuable time and, most importantly, make sure that you have just what you need for successful implementation of the curriculum. Adding curriculum kits to your classroom will help you engage children in learning experiences across developmental areas using developmentally-appropriate, high-quality materials.
