The 2015 Texas Prekindergarten Guidelines have been revised by educators across Texas and the Texas Education Agency. Together, they looked at scientific research for child development to update information and align the revised 2022 Texas Prekindergarten Guidelines to the Texas Essential Skills and Knowledge (TEKS) for K-12. The guidelines define ten domains of early childhood development and provide behaviors and skills in each domain that children should exhibit by the end of prekindergarten. The TX PK Guidelines are appropriate for all academic settings including general education or special education programs.
In this session, we will explore the revised guidelines and examine the skills for both PK3s and PK4s. Participants will discuss the learning domains, and how to adjust the expected rigor of skills based on student learning level, as well as receive instructional strategies to support student success for each learning domain.
