Welcome to A Bright Beginning: Early Literacy Migrant Program for 3- and 4-Year Olds

A Bright Beginning is an Early Literacy Program for 3- and 4-year old children in the Texas migrant program. A Bright Beginning is a high-quality, research-based resource aligned to the Revised Texas Prekindergarten Guidelines, centered on cross-curricular themes.

A Bright Beginning has been designed for specific age and developmental ranges and includes both content and language objectives.

The center-based component includes lessons with extended curriculum connections in the areas of Phonemic Awareness, Read Aloud, Writing, Math, Science/Social Studies and Home Connections. This program includes 95 home-based and 95 center-based lessons in English and Spanish. Lesson concepts will also be incorporated into appropriate center connections.
