Gates, Jane K.; And Others
Presented are approximately 110 lesson plans for six mental age levels (from 0-9 months to 3 1/2-4 1/2 years) to teach language, gross motor skills, and manipulative skills to severely and profoundly retarded children. Provided for each lesson is information on the experience area (whether motor or language), the dominant modality used, materials needed, appropriate setting (whether classroom or individual activity area), and number of participants. Also provided are a general description of the activity instructions, helpful suggestions, and referral to associated lessons. Teachers are encouraged to coordinate daily lessons around similar concepts and to make use of all available time to teach useful skills and needed words and concepts. Examples of activities are licking off a portion of food placed on upper lip (Level I-gross motor), following the light of a flashlight on a wall (Level II-language), making instant pudding (Level III-manipulative), looking for a hidden object (Level IV-gross motor), passing a bean bag (Level V-manipulative), and describing self (Level VI-language).
