Individualized Motor-Perceptual Study.
Portland Public Schools, OR.
This guide is being used in the Individualized Motor-Perceptual Study to determine whether working directly with kindergarten children to improve performance on motor-perceptual tasks will affect reading ability at the end of grades one, two, and three. The 5-year project involves six schools. In this guide, there are tips for teaching, suggested beginning activities, an appendix defining terms used in the program, a bibliography, teacher checklists, and suggested tape recordings to be used during the program. There are activities to develop general coordination, balance, body image, eye-hand coordination, eye movements, and sensory perception. Each activity is divided into objective, general purpose, materials, directions for teachers, suggested directions to the children, and variations of the activity. (DO)
