Que bonito es leer! (How Nice It Is to Read!).
Villarreal, Abelardo; And Others
This Spanish-language supplementary language arts program focuses on the development of decoding, encoding, comprehension, and interpretation skills, and is oriented toward the Mexican-American child's experience. It is designed for first-grade bilingual programs and as a resource for instruction in Spanish as a second language up to the third grade. The program consists of: a teacher's manual; an exercise workbook for the student; 65 flashcards color-coded to match the workbook; and 12 readers which can be used separately or as part of the program. The vocabulary is sequenced to parallel the reading lessons, building from a line or two of text on a page in the first to about eight lines per page in the last of the series. (Author/AM)
