The purpose of this manuscript (written in Spanish) is to encourage the development of communication skills of preschool children by introducing their parents to a number of learning activities suitable for home use. It is written to be used by an instructor who is working with preschool parents. The activities, which are designed to be uncomplicated and reasonable in cost and invested time, are grouped in 10 sections: (1) knowing the child; (2) what happens between parent and child; (3) setting goals for the child; (4) emphasizing everyday happenings; (5) reading to children; (6) using free and inexpensive materials for language experiences; (7) making the alphabet letters; (8) games that can be made at home; (9) writing down children's experiences; and (10) writing stories with the child. Each of the sections contains directed activities to be performed with the instructor's guidance, at home activities involving the parent and child, and parent take-home sheets with information and exercises they can use to increase their own knowledge. Some benefits of the program are listed; the major expectation is that the activities will enhance a child's chances of success in the initial stages of learning to read and write. (SDH)
