Dombrower, Jule; And Others
Part of a program to increase the academic growth of preschool and primary grade children through the utilization of brain hemisphere research, this volume contains lessons for improving math, social studies, and science learning. Material is divided into two major sections. Section 1 contains 11 chapters covering the following math skills: counting, arithmetic, money, place value, fractions, geometry, clock time, calendar time, problem solving, graphing, and math aids. Activities, which are many and varied, include division with egg cartons, designing with coins, identifying shapes, creating flip books, and mastering snack time, lunch time, and school bus math. Social studies and math activities are presented in section 2. Five social studies chapters cover self-concept, the body, the calendar, and holidays and seasons. A final chapter deals with selected science topics, such as planets, animals, and sounds. (LP)
