Connecting Literature and Math (CLAM)

In 2016, Arkansas adopted an important new resource for the state's early childhood community, the Arkansas Child Development and Early Learning Standards (CDELS): Birth through 60 Months.  The materials listed below are aligned with these new standards.  As additional Focus Areas and Topics of Study for both curricula are revised to reflect the new standards, they will be added to this website.
