Most units include suggestions for activities that children can do at home with their parents plus references to resources such as books, records and films, many available in Spanish. Names of units included are: About Me; Nursery Rhymes; The Senses; Plants; Transportation; Children of Other Lands; Birds, Spiders, Insects and Worms; Community Helpers; Animals; The Farm; Circus; Sea Life; Seasons; Holidays; Free Play; and Pre-Writing.
