Teacher's Guide to Accompany "Read and Tell 1,""Read-It-Yourself 1, Book A,""Read-It-Yourself 1, Book B,""Do-It-Yourself 1."
McCoy, Elin
This teacher's guide is composed of reading readiness activities for kindergarteners designed to: (1) lead from teacher-directed instruction toward independent learning and reinforcement activities; (2) help the teacher build on each child's previous background while teaching new learning strategies; and (3) emphasize six readiness areas (language, cognition, comprehension, perception, motor skills, and attitude). The guide contains 10 units with 5-7 lessons in each. Objectives, resource materials, and activities for the whole class, more advanced activities for children who are ready, and activities for children who need additional help are given for each lesson. The major skills emphasized include: oral language development, language concepts, and motor skills (left to right progression), concept development (sequencing), critical thinking, comprehension, visual skills (matching), auditory skills (listening, discrimination, identification), letter name knowledge, and attitudes toward books and reading. Content areas focus on feelings, families, farms, supermarkets, foods, pets, homes, community workers, weather, and construction. Although the guide is designed to be used as the first level in Macmillan's Reading Readiness Program with related program texts, many of the activities employ teacher-made or teacher-collected materials.
