Readiness: Some Travel Faster than Others. A Unit on Reading Readiness.
An extended readiness unit plan for beginning first graders who demonstrated a limited degree of readiness in kindergarten is provided. The unit theme is the five senses, and the following sequence of presentation is used: sight, hearing, smell, touch, and taste. Visual-perception activities receive the most emphasis. Included in procedures for teaching each section are descriptions of individual, small-group, and large-group activities; patterns for some materials used; and poems, film, and art activities. Recommended time limits are also included for each unit. Suggested teacher references and supplementary films are listed, and an extensive booklist for first-grade independent reading, published by Elementary English, is appended. (CM)
