Handbook for Administrators and Teachers: Reading in the Kindergarten.
Ollila, Lloyd O., Ed.
This handbook is designed to assist those who administer kindergarten reading programs. Although its primary focus is upon the role of the principal, the handbook also contains ideas for kindergarten teachers. The first chapter provides background information about the place of reading in the kindergarten and offers some insights into various effective reading programs. The second chapter examines typical characteristics and diversities of the five-year-old child. The third chapter focuses specifically on the administrator's role in developing a kindergarten reading program and suggests ways of working with teachers and parents. The fourth chapter provides guidelines for implementing a reading program, while the fifth chapter describes different patterns for organizing such a program. The final chapter presents a plan for continuous diagnosis and assessment of the program. (FL)
