This handbook for primary school teachers and aides incorporates a variety of classroom ideas and materials related to the instructional component of the bilingual program. Written in English and Spanish, the handbook is designed to supplement the Fort Worth Public Schools bilingual curriculum, but it can also be used for language enrichment purposes. The material is presented in nine broad areas: (1) days, months, seasons; (2) colors, letters, numbers; (3) plants, animals; (4) self, family, community; (5) food, clothing; (6) holidays, special events; (7) classroom terms and expressions; (8) biographies; and (9) games, stories. The material has been organized in a format that allows supplementary material to be added as it is compiled, produced, and published. Terminology for mathematics, science, social studies, and health and safety have been included to supplement each area of the curriculum. Although no grade-level limitations have been placed on the use of the material, it is suggested that teachers adapt the ideas and activities suitable for their grade level to the curriculum for that grade.
