Implementation of the Toy Lending Library in the State of Utah. Summary Report, 1971-72.
Utah State Board of Education, Salt Lake City.; Utah State Dept. of Public Instruction, Salt Lake City.
The Toy Library program trains parents to use a limited number of educational toys to teach specific skills, fundamental concepts, and problem solving behaviors to their own three- and four-year-old children. The program is designed to fill the educational needs of the many three- and four-year-old children who are not participants in some other organized educational program. Parents are given an eight-week course, held once a week for about two hours, on how to facilitate the educational development of their children. In addition to the background of the development of the program, the following are discussed; (1) the fall 1971 teacher training workshop; (2) fall 1971 planning activities of each of the participating school districts and three workshops; (3) Utah school districts planning to implement the program; (4) summary of responses to the evaluation questionnaire filled out by teachers; (5) meeting the 1971-72 goals--to implement the program in at least one school in at least ten Utah school districts, to conduct at least three teacher training workshops, to have at least two followup visits to each school conducting the program, and to prepare a comprehensive implementation plan for the program for the State; and (6) recommendations. Letters and other materials used in the program are presented in appendices. (KM)
