All About Me. Unit 1 Curriculum Guide.
Camp, Janet; Wilkerson, Peggy
This curriculum guide presents a 2- or 3-week unit concerned with the individual child and his relationships with members of the classroom social group. One in a series of resource units, this unit is placed first for several reasons: (1) its content is highly motivational; (2) it provides a meaningful context for acquainting children with each other; (3) it encourages the development of basic sensory skills; (4) it contributes to development of a positive self-concept; and (5) it is designed to review and extend previously developed concepts and skills. The content is ordered from the most simple to the most complex, enabling the teacher to terminate the unit at any point where the content becomes too complex or abstract for the children to grasp. Instructional materials and unit content should be adapted to reflect the physical characteristics of the different children in the classroom. Provided is a listing and explanation of each of the skills to be developed accompanied by suggested instructional activities. Instructional materials are listed with sources; and the appendix provides additional instructional aids. (Author/AJ)
