Language Skills for the Young Child.
Simonds, Lynn
The program outlined in this document has been based on the premises that the communication skills form the basis for achievement in other areas and are interwoven with personal development and self-concept, and that working on language development involves increasing children's abilities to use sounds, the structure of the language, grammatical markers in the language, and the words, meanings, and concepts of the language. The contents are divided into three parts; using language to build self-concept; setting the stage for language experiences (speaking, cognitive thinking, drama, listening as a language skill, creative writing, literature, and musical improvisation); and a checklist for evaluation of speech, language, and cognitive thinking. For each of the sections in the first and second parts, teaching techniques and classroom activities are suggested. A selected bibliography lists items according to five categories: books for the teacher, books to use with children, books for children, music books, and phonograph records. (JM)
