Early Childhood Objectives for Five-Year-Old Migrant Children. Florida Migratory Child Compensatory Program.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Migratory Child Div.
The (1972-73) Florida Migratory Child Compensatory Program covers preschool migrant children (ages 3, 4, and 5). The educational objectives were developed and adopted for use by each of the 21 participating counties. The National Migrant Goals, the Florida Migrant Early Childhood Guidelines, and the Florida Kindergarten Accreditation Standard Goals and Standards were used in setting up the following objectives: (1) provide the opportunity to improve communication skills necessary for varying situations; (2) provide preschool and kindergarten experiences geared to psychological and physiological development which will prepare the migrant child to function successfully; (3) provide specially designed programs in language arts, math, social studies, and other academic endeavors to increase the child's capabilities to function at this potential; and (4) provide specially designed activities to increase the child's social growth, positive self-concept, and group interaction skills. Each section (categorized under these 4 objectives) lists activities and materials used by the 206 program teachers during the school year to achieve these objectives. (NQ)
