Eligible by TEA for PreK Proclamation 2021
Innovative Neuroscience approach for effective learning
English and Spanish mirrored content
Blended learning environment or self-paced instruction
Easy-to-use on all devices for teachers, students, and parents
The online curriculum is organized into 6 instructional units, with 3 lessons each, for a total of 18 lessons.
Each “Lesson” is segmented into components that include Language and Communication, Science, Math, Music, Art and Fine Motor Skills, and Physical Development. The Emergent reading and writing skills, as well as the Social-emotional and Social Studies skills are covered in a cross-curricular format throughout the lessons. (TPG´s coverage: Spanish – 95.81% / English – 92.25%).
PreK students are at a critical period of their neurological development. Their brain has high plasticity, primed for building new neural circuits. EDUSPARK Kiddos integrates accelerated learning techniques for language development by expanding their academic vocabulary through multisensory stimuli associated with meaningful context, with high speed, variety, and proper frequency to build new circuits.
Our lessons include a variety of interactive learning objects such as videos, memory games, matching games, songs, flashcards, concerts, and more. The content also includes math quizzes, phonics and vocabulary formative assessments that allow teachers to easily track student progress.
Each workbook has over 120 w&b pages (240 pages total) which are part of the activities in pdf format integrated into the digital curriculum. Although it is an optional resource, it is important to consider that fine motor skills and particularly handwriting have a high impact on the development of neural circuits by combining precise movements, sight, directionality, strength, and finger grip when making a drawing or using a writing tool.
*Optional resources not required to comply with the TPG´s because their activities are embedded digitally in the online product.
EDUSPARK Kiddos content is hosted on NEO LMS, an award-winning learning platform that makes it easy to create and deliver engaging online classes.
The platform is known for delivering a great user experience on all devices while incorporating all the essential tools schools need to support effective teaching and learning. NEO was built to ensure a smooth implementation and districts can easily configure the platform.
Teachers can make differentiated learning paths, trigger automated actions, and personalize what content students see in classes based on their progress using advanced, innovative functionalities such as automation, and adaptive learning. Earning points and badges in games also makes learning more fun and engaging!
Teachers can easily evaluate what students learn in classes using our powerful gradebook and 15 assignment types. Using built-in reports and ad-hoc reporting educators can get instant insights and quickly identify areas where students might need help. Competency-based learning allows teachers to track on a TPG’s mastery basis how well students are understanding the concepts that are being taught.

The effectiveness of our PreK curriculum to build vocabulary and language skills is based on neuroscience principles suggesting that neural connections are strengthened with repeated use, with the variety and speed of stimuli, integrating words from the same category in a meaningful context. That is why we suggest let the children use each lesson for two weeks to create new circuits and reinforce their brain architecture.
The media resources available in the curriculum enhance students’ learning from prior knowledge with interleaving and variety techniques, from retrieval, recalling, and gathering information to reflection, elaboration, and consolidation of long-term memory for permanent and meaningful learning.
EDUSPARK Kiddos will provide PreK students with more opportunities to build language circuits, which are the solid foundation on which more complex circuits are built, such as reading and higher cognitive skills.
