In response to the research findings of Head Start programs, in particular, and of research in early childhood education, in general, this manual was created by the Kindergarten Study Group of the Cincinnati Public Schools to examine the kindergarten program. The purpose of this manual is to help teachers broaden and extend the learning of the pupils, especially in the language arts. Ways are suggested for working with children to provide for individual, small group, and total class instruction. The manual sets out activities for developing pupils' skills in vocabulary, organization of ideas, auditory and visual perception, and speech.
