Children begin their first Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Curriculum called Big Day in this classroom.

Big Day by Harcourt is a proven-effective comprehensive early learning program that embraces children’s natural curiosity and encourages them to explore and connect to the world around them.

Big Day includes five BIG elements of success:

  1. Big Experiences: each day is organized around three big experiences—whole group, circle time and story time lessons—that provide an anchor for conversation, play and learning.
  2. Meaningful Conversations: oral language is at the heart of Big Day instruction and the program provides opportunities for children to hear language modeled and use language in rich and varied contexts.
  3. The Best Children’s Literature and Nonfiction texts: the program surrounds children with a diverse collection of authentic literature and nonfiction: big books, lap books, little books, eBooks, video storybooks, audiobooks, take-home books, and downloadable books.
