The Daily Curriculum Guide, Year II, Weeks 11-20. A Preschool Program for the Spanish-Speaking Child.
Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.; Spanish Dame Bilingual Bicultural Project, San Jose, CA.
Daily lesson plans for weeks 11 through 20 are given in this guide which is part of the second year of the Daily Curriculum Guide preschool program for Spanish-speaking children. The program is designed to use Spanish as a means to develop basic concepts, skills and attitudes. Each lesson, written in Spanish and English, gives detailed teacher instructions on lesson objectives, materials needed, and activity procedures. The objectives and activities introduced in the first ten weeks are continued. These include teaching the color, number and shape concepts, as well as developing the child's self-awareness, auditory memory, small and large muscle coordination, and visual and auditory perception. Activities associated with Christmas are planned with discussion of U.S. and Mexican customs, Christmas stories and songs, art work, and the construction of gifts and a pinata. Other projects include work with the calendar, discussion of weather and seasons, a rhythm band, soup-making, and counting activities. Social development is promoted as children discuss how they help at home, share, play together, and help others. Action games like "Follow the Leader", "Mulberry Bush", and "Simon Dice" are included in each day's activities, as are songs sung in both Spanish and English. A cassette tape that includes the songs used in the guides can be ordered separately from the Dissemination Center. (DS)
