Foundational Literacy and Numeracy :

The aims of foundational literacy and numeracy are closely linked to the aims of education as a whole. Besides its instrumental value, education also has intrinsic value and emancipatory value. Success in Foundational Literacy and Numeracy enhances future learning capacities and also enhances participation in economic, social, and developmental factors throughout life.

Thoughtful Reading, or the Intentional act of slow reading or Deep Reading, is also the goal of Foundational Literacy and Numeracy.

Some goals of Foundational Literacy are as follows – Pre-Math Concepts, Numbers and Operations, Measurement, Geometry, and Patterns.

Some goals of Foundational Literacy are as follows – Oral Language Development, Phonological Awareness, Decoding, Concept About Print, Writing, Culture of Reading, Vocabulary, Reading Comprehension, and Reading Fluency.

Besides working in FLN through Curriculum, Training, and Assessment, stakeholders collaborate with us for Module development, Surveys, Research, and intervention plans.

Join our Training Program on Foundational Literacy and Numeracy (FLN) and also contact us to develop a customised curriculum as per your needs and objectives.

Quality Children’s Literature

Books are the most important source for language & literature, concepts, and lessons for children. Both parents and schools end up buying those books which are much more visible due to advertisements. Big quality may also be high in sell charts, but books that are high in top-sales charts may not necessarily be good quality books.

Choosing a good quality book impacts children’s early literacy much more significantly.
There are upmarket and downmarket books.
The ZERO Curriculum™ decides on quality children’s literature based on complex text, narrative, plot, character, character actions, dialogue, setting, thematic constructions, the richness of language, symbols, engagement, illustrations et al.

Join our Training Programs on “Quality Children’s Literature”- Selection, Review, and Early Literacy implications.

Reach us to get a customised Books List as per your Budget & Requirements.

Scientific Principles based Pedagogy

The science of pedagogy is both a theory and practice of formal education. An unprepared teacher may find the pedagogies to be complicated. The ZERO Curriculum™ appreciates that pedagogies are necessary to provide speedy and crucial educational changes.

We work in the areas of ECCE and Primary Grades Pedagogies. Join our Training Programs on ‘Pedagogy’ to understand and use them in the Curriculum.

Pedagogy of – Teaching, Learning, and Unlearning!

Early Literacy

Early Literacy / Foundational Literacy:- The ZERO Curriculum™ understands that Early Literacy is more than just Reading and Writing. It is about entire Communication – expressing oneself, sharing experiences, dreams, imagination, oral capability, writing capability, pictures, paintings, Art, Colours, and much more, and we have included each in our Curriculum.

Join our Training Programs to understand ‘Early Literacy’ – Multi-Grade Multi-Level Classrooms (MGML), Multilingualism, Phonics … Early Literacy is more than – ‘When could a child start writing?’. Early Literacy is more than early phases of reading, writing … Pictures, Print, and Vocabulary!

Downward Extensions and Connections among Subjects / Content Areas?

To many, it may seem that Kindergarten is an ‘early level’ of School or Grade 1, and Pre-Kindergarten (PlayGroup, Nursery) is also ‘quite an early level’ of School or Grade 1.
But, The ZERO Curriculum™ understands that Preschool Education is not a mere downward extension of School or Grade 1.
Preschool Education has much more comprehensive coverage. E.g. ‘Early mathematical skills’ are different from just being a downward extension of School grade mathematics or Mathematics of Grade 1.

Join us to bring High-Quality Preschool Curriculum – a continuum approach.

Social Studies

The challenges, which are to be faced by mankind twenty years from now, would be more challenging than could be quickly addressed in the parameters of Science alone or Mathematics alone. Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences will play roles much more significant than they could be visualized.

So, our Social Studies Curriculum, the teaching, and the learning will happen in an exact way, it should be – “appreciating Facts, appreciating Past, Environment consciousness”.

Instructional Methodologies of Social Studies.

Making Social Studies enjoyable!

Social Studies in ECCE @ The ZERO Curriculum™

Play vs. Hard work – Hard work itself is FUN™.

In general parlance, ‘play,’ and ‘hard work’ is highly misused words.
Like ‘Mathematics’, even ‘LUDO’ (a simple board game) has rules, but everybody enjoys learning those rules. Simply put, more than the actual content, it’s how instructions are taken and given that makes the difference.
When it comes to the child, a play taken up by the child may be pretty complex, but the child enjoys playing it. As long as things are developmentally appropriate and the child enjoys it, it is fun. That’s why we say – Hard work itself is FUN™.

In the play, a child is always above his average age, above his daily behavior … – Vygotsky.

Abstract Thinking, Self-regulation, rule-based, Complex play!

Learning through Play @ The ZERO Curriculum™

Play is NOT idle babysitting Play™.

When it comes to ‘Preschool Education’, ‘play’ is a highly misused and misunderstood word.
A child may have infinite ways of playing.

In ‘Preschool Education’ (ECCE) philosophy, the play could be anything like – Free Play, Guided Play, Playful learning, Playful pedagogy, Learning through play, playful classroom, symbolic play, pretend play, imaginative play, playful settings, supplement play, etc, but simple babysitting and child wandering around and playing itself, is not at all ‘play’ which we would want to happen in a Preschool environment.
That’s why The ZERO Curriculum™ says – Play is NOT idle babysitting Play™.

How we Teach is more important than What we Teach™.

Suppose we are teaching about an ‘xyz’ animal. Now, what animal we teach would hold lesser importance than how and what we teach about that animal.
The list of such How’s is also very long – how will instructional exercises be carried out? How are activities to be done? How is the discussion to be started? How to conduct the related thematic activity? How to use Flash Card? How to use worksheets? And much more. All such How have been adequately addressed in The ZERO Curriculum™.

However, overall both How and What we teach are essential!

Choice, Identity, Responsibility, Goal setting.
