Program of Studies. Early Childhood Education: Kindergarten Section.
Fairfax County Schools, VA.
This manual uses charts and outlines to present a kindergarten program based on the theory that learning is developmental and continuous. The program's integrated subject approach is aimed at enabling children to develop communication skills, intellectual abilities, a positive self-image, and academically appropriate psychomotor skills. These four general goals are outlined in terms of specific behavioral objectives. A working draft of suggested approaches to achieving the stated objectives forms the largest portion of the manual. It includes descriptions of teaching/learning strategies for each objective, organizational alternatives (learning centers, teacher-aide teams, or a combination of the two) and evaluation processes (initial and follow-up assessment tasks for each objective, and guidelines for communicating with parents and maintaining progress records). Appendices to this section of the manual provide further information on planning; reading instruction; use of learning materials and activities such as beads, blocks, tools, and field trips; use and interpretation of the draw-a-man test; and a sample progress report form. A final section offers suggestions for selecting and ordering appropriate classroom equipment and consumable and nonconsumable materials sufficient for a class of 25 students. (ED)
