Project PREPARE. Guide.
Butte Vocational-Technical Center, Montana.
The guide was developed as part of Project Prepare, a demonstration program designed to teach disadvantaged parents adult basic education skills and to show these parents how and what to teach their preschool children. It contains activities, advice, and resources for parents. All materials pertain to creative play for preschoolers that develop prereading skills. The enumerated activities are supplemented with suggestions for readilyavailable, inexpensive materials. Finger plays, recipes, and poems are provided and criterion for the evaluation of toys for infant, toddler, and for those ages 2-5 are discussed. Hints for free household toys taken from household materials and listings of the typical preschool child's emotional, mental, physical, and social development are included. Three poems for parents attempt to illustrate the need for understanding these developments, and two listings of representative skills and attitudes leading to the development of reading are presented. A list of preschool resources concludes the guide. (JB)
