Tennessee Approves Voyager Sopris Learning's We Can PreK Curriculum for use in Voluntary PreK Programs
DALLAS, Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Voyager Sopris Learning, a member of Cambium Learning® Group, announced today their receipt of the Tennessee Department of Education's review and approval of the We Can Early Learning Curriculum for use in Tennessee's voluntary prekindergarten programs.
Developed by Vicki Gibson, Ph.D., We Can is a proven preK and early learning solution that prepares all children, ages 3–5, for academic success. The robust, multidisciplinary curriculum provides a clear road map for early childhood success—featuring easy-to-implement lesson plans, a wide range of innovative and technology-enhanced learning tools, embedded differentiation, and a comprehensive classroom management system.
We Can is built to address key literacy and numeracy skills defined in the Common Core and other state standards for kindergarten and delivers instruction and practice to support learning in all early childhood domains.
Connie Casha, Tennessee's Director of Early Childhood Programs, explains: "When our office approves a curriculum for use in the voluntary preK programs, the school systems consider this a stamp of approval for meeting developmentally appropriate best practices as well as aligning with the TN-ELDS. This ensures that our children participate in programs that will give them the best opportunity for success, not only in preK but throughout their educational years."
We Can has a history of success, with proven results in districts like Granite School District in Utah, where a study revealed a dramatic decrease in special education referrals as well as a narrowing of the achievement gaps for both language arts (from 22% to 5%) and math (from 28% to 2%).

This multidisciplinary curriculum builds the foundation for success in kindergarten and beyond.
