The SMILE Starter Series for Grade 1 to Grade 3 contains the following materials:
- a Teacher’s Book
- a Pupil’s Book with activities
- Audio recordings
SMILE follows the educational guidelines set by the National Centre for Curricula and Educational Research (NCCER) in Sudan. These guidelines are detailed in a table found in Appendix VI on page 88 of the curriculum.
To make it easier for teachers to understand how SMILE matches these standards, the curriculum's lesson overviews connect the language and skills taught in each lesson to the specific standards provided by the NCCER.
Moreover, each activity in the curriculum has a clear purpose. This purpose is stated at the beginning of each activity and helps teachers grasp the main focus of that activity and how it fits into the overall lesson.
