The 8 Week Instructional Plan provides one example of the first eight weeks of instruction with FPC. Use it to get started, gain momentum, or simply as a reference during the first eight weeks. Remember, FPC is based on responsive teaching—this 8 Week Instructional Plan is just one example of how you might begin instruction in your own classroom. Available in the Online Resources for FPC or through your local sales representative.


What is Coming Soon?

Unpacking Videos


If you have ordered FPC for your entire school or district, you could soon be receiving hundreds of boxes. But don't panic! Currently in production is a video series that will guide you through the organization and inventory process from the moment the shipper boxes arrive—before you even need to reach for the box-cutter—right up until you're fully organized and ready to begin implementing. These context-specific videos are estimated to be available by the time you receive your shipments.


Getting Started Videos

GettingStartedVideo-1 If you already have some parts of FPC, you may have seen some of the Getting Started videos available in the Online Resources. These are currently being updated and will include grades 4-6. These short, informative videos will provide an overview to the components in your collection(s). They will be available in the Online Resources
