Family Connections Handbook. Revised August 1993.
This handbook describes the Family Connections program, which consists of 2 sets of guides developed to help families help their young children learn. One set is intended for preschool or kindergarten children, and one set for parents and caregivers. Each set contains 30 four-page guides. The guides are designed to be distributed to parents and children on a weekly basis during the school year to encourage parents to take an active role in their child's education and to provide children with developmentally appropriate activities that they can take part in at home. This handbook provides educators with instructions and suggestions on how to use the Family Connections guides, how to work with parents, and how to promote the program. Sample news releases, parent reaction forms, and review sheets, as well as parent handouts and stationary suitable for photocopying, are also included. (MDM)
