Kindergarten Starter Kit

For individual grade levels from Preschool through Grade 5, a “Starter Kit” can conveniently bundle a selection of Core Knowledge resources for newcomers just getting started with Core Knowledge or experienced teachers looking to enrich their knowledge and complement their existing supply of Core Knowledge materials.

See below a list of items we recommend purchasing to get started in Kindergarten and links to the product pages for purchase.
