A MANUAL OF MATERIALS, AIDS, AND TECHNIQUES FOR THE TEACHING OF SPANISH TO ENGLISH-SPEAKING CHILDREN IN THE FIRST GRADE.
El Paso Public Schools, TX.
UNITS IN FIRST GRADE CONVERSATIONAL SPANISH ARE CORRELATED WITH THE REGULAR COURSE OF STUDY. CONSTANT REPETITION OF VOCABULARY PHRASES AND SENTENCES IS EMPHASIZED AS AN IMPORTANT FACTOR FOR THE FIRST GRADER LEARNING SPANISH BY "EAR." ALL VOCABULARY PRESENTED IS LINKED WITH KNOWN EXPERIENCES AND OBJECTS EITHER WITHIN THE CLASSROOM OR IN THE LIFE OF THE CHILD. THE FIRST YEAR OF SPANISH IS PRIMARILY CONCERNED WITH EAR TRAINING, AND RESPONSE MAY BE SLOW OR NIL. THE ROLE OF THE TEACHER AS A RESOURCEFUL, IMAGINATIVE, ENTHUSIASTIC SUPPORTER IS MOST IMPORTANT. THE AIM OF THIS SPECIALLY DEVELOPED CURRICULUM IS TO TRAIN CHILDREN TO "THINK" IN SPANISH. NO TRANSLATION ACTIVITY SHOULD TAKE PLACE. A UNIT ON DIRECTIONS AND COMMANDS, AS WELL AS BASIC VOCABULARY FOR FIRST GRADE IS GIVEN. SONGS ARE INCLUDED. PERIODS SHOULD NOT EXCEED TWENTY MINUTES. INCLUDED UNITS ARE--GREETINGS AND NAMES, THE CLASSROOM, PARTS OF THE BODY, CHILDREN'S ARTICLES OF CLOTHING, THE FAMILY, ARTICLES OF CLOTHING FOR THE PARENTS, THE OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE, HOUSEHOLD FURNITURE, I SET THE TABLE, FRUITS, VEGETABLES, HOLIDAYS, SEASONS, AND WEATHER.
