    Three Cheers for Pre-K - Savvas Learning Company

    Three Cheers for Pre-K is a new ready-to-go pre-kindergarten curriculum that provides a balance of academics and purposeful play to successfully pave the way for kindergarten readiness. With an array of innovative digital features, the program is thoughtfully designed to support social-emotional and culturally responsive learning through instruction tied to nine developmentally appropriate themes. The curriculum fosters the development of key skills and concepts in the core disciplines of literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies, as well as in other subjects, such as health, technology and the arts — all of which are integrated into weekly instruction. 

    Through a partnership with Unite for Literacy, whose mission is to expand early learners’ access to quality literature, Three Cheers offers children access to a digital bookshelf of titles that build literacy skills while celebrating languages and cultures. The content is curated to represent all genders, races, national origins, disabilities, and ages, in both text and images.

    In addition to helping four-year-olds become proficient with key concepts and skills, the program offers differentiated instruction to support the growth of struggling students, English language learners, advanced learners, and three-year-olds. The curriculum can be modified for half-day and full-day pre-K programs. 

    Fully integrated with Savvas Realize, Three Cheers supports and enhances early learning through interactive games, online narrated books, and fun digital activities rooted in learning goals. An online Family Engagement portal gives parents and families the tools they need to support their little learners at home.

    The program includes diagnostic tools and assessments to help teachers determine children's proficiency in emergent literacy and math skills and monitor progress toward mastery of the Pre-K learning outcomes. A translated and adapted version of the program called “Uno, dos, tres Prekinder!” is designed to enhance children’s development of Spanish literacy skills and lessons with parallel instruction in English and Spanish.


    When it comes to scalability and integrations, Realize is in a class of its own. Plug-and-play interoperability with top classroom tools has been a priority since its creation. Realize is the first LMS from a major publisher to become a Google for Education Partner, offering teachers seamless digital integration with Google Classroom. Realize is also IMS-certified and works with LMS partners like Canvas and Schoology. The platform also integrates with a variety of technologies schools already use including rostering and authentication systems, open educational resource libraries, and productivity tools.
