Welcome to a World of Words!
The World of Words (WOW) curriculum integrates multiple sources of information and technology to stimulate children’s literacy development in content areas aligned with national pre-kindergarten standards. In collaboration with the creators of Sesame Street®, WOW uses child-friendly media to support children’s learning as they encounter new words and concepts in science, mathematics, social studies, and health. Throughout the WOW curriculum, teachers guide children through developmentally appropriate exercises to increase literacy skills while developing their knowledge and vocabulary in academic content areas. We are currently using the WOW curriculum across schools in District 7 of the Bronx and evaluating its impact.
"WOW is designed to accelerate children’s oral language and vocabulary through fascinating topics that relate to the life, biological and physical sciences."
