OCPS is excited to announce the release of cutting-edge videos to support standards-based instruction for our early childhood students! Videos are written and produced by OCPS teachers as a creative way to enhance the curriculum for PreK ESE and kindergarten through second grade.
OCPS has partnered with the University of Central Florida to provide educational programming on public channel WUCF TV, channel 24.5, to broadcast the videos. For more information on how to access channel 24.5, please contact your local provider. Videos will also be available on the Curriculum and Digital Learning YouTube page and on Canvas. All students in PreK ESE and kindergarten through second grade will be enrolled in a Canvas course to access the videos. New videos will be released monthly for each grade level. Check them out!
