Language Activities in Nursery School: A Guide for Preschool Teachers.
Indianapolis Council of Parent Cooperatives, IN.
The activities described in this guide have been collected in an effort to suggest an underlying philosophy for a language arts curriculum in nursery schools and to outline and suggest a variety of methods by which this philosophy can be put to use. Materials commonly found in the classroom, outside, and in the home, and well-known songs and games are here presented in the context of promoting language development in the preschool child. The guide is divided into four sections: (1) using visual symbols in communication; (2) motoric expression; (3) speaking; and (4) listening. Each section begins with a rationale followed by a list of activities grouped in approximate order of difficulty. (ED)
