Implementing the new characters in your school or district should be planned and thought out carefully. It's important that both teachers and students have the correct materials before you decide to transition to the new characters.
We currently only recommend only using the new characters with curriculum materials that are marked "2nd edition". In the first year, start out with our new Kindergarten 2nd Edition curriculum. For the second year, add on Grade One (2nd Edition) and Intervention 1 (2nd Edition). In the third year, add on Grade Two (2nd Edition).
* For Pre-K and Intervention it is possible to use the new characters with existing classic materials.
