Kern County Superintendent of Schools, Bakersfield, Ca. Div. of Instructional Services.
One of a series of activity guides designed to aid teachers in developing the thinking skills of primary grade students, this publication offers a variety of learning activities and resource materials. The activities and resources include: a calendar which lists important days and birthdays in February; poems; flannelboard stories; word puzzles and other puzzles; language arts activities; an exercise in following directions; art activities; mathematics activities; activities related to the metric system; activities to develop an awareness of post office careers; and variations on playing tag. Many of the activities have a Valentine's Day or Presidents' Day theme or are related to Arizona (the "state of the month"). An index lists the activities in four categories related to thinking skills from Guilford's Structure of the Intellect model: cognition, memory, convergent production, and divergent production. (DC)
