This guide, designed to support language arts programs in teaching English to speakers of other languages and in teaching standard English as a second dialect, is for use by teachers of language-handicapped children at the kindergarten level. The 135 half hour lessons, covering one year's work, may be used with mixed groups since the basic sentence structures are presented through Kindergarten-like activities and geared to the children's conceptual and physical needs. Sentence patterns and vocabulary to be introduced or reviewed in each lesson are listed at the top of each lesson. The lessons contain a heading, brief description paragraph, example dialogues, and a listing of required audio-visual materials. A Spanish interference and dialect interference sheet and a technique for teaching pattern practice are included. (RL)
