ABOUT THE ECWS SYSTEM
For Teachers, School Districts, & Home Educators
The Early Childhood Writing Strategies and Progress Monitoring System provides methods for ensuring children develop age-appropriate writing skills while supporting STEM/STEAM academic vocabulary. The ECWS teacher’s manual and correlating student workbooks are program tools that support school districts, campuses, and teachers in aligning writing objectives with research-based Science or English Language Arts programs already in place. The program is suitable for children whose primary language is English, or Spanish, and for those who require English or Spanish language support.
MISSION & VISION
