Language Experiences for Your Preschooler. Part 2: Activities in the Neighborhood.
Tregaskis, George K.; And Others
This publication presents a curriculum designed to develop the communication skills of preschool children by introducing parents to a number of learning activities which might evolve from excursions in their neighborhoods and communities. The activities suggested are not closely, complicated, or overly time-consuming. In each section, background information about the topic is provided, a directed activity is explained, and activities to be done at home are suggested as follow-up. The initial chapters basically concern the parent as a teacher, the child as a learner, and the neighborhood and community as places to learn. Also presented are specific activity trips to the library, supermarket, fire station, police station, gas station, drugstore, hardware store, eating establishments, subway, zoo, and school. (SDH)
