Preschool Curriculum Guide for Preschool Teachers of Migrant Children.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem. Compensatory Education Section.
There is an urgent need to improve the language of the migrant children if they are to succeed in school. The child must have a solid understanding and usage of the Standard English used in the schools. This guide, developed through the efforts and cooperation of teachers of migrant preschool children, attempts to develop academic readiness skills, emphasizing oral language development as a separate subject as well as incorporated into the other subject areas. It is emphasized that in no way is usage of the child's dialect or cultural idioms to be discouraged. The guide has been given a year of field testing and subsequently revised. Therefore, it should not be considered complete or final. The guide covers: suggested plans for the first day and first week; examples of daily schedules; programs for reading readiness, arithmetic readiness, science, physical education, health and safety, music, arts and crafts, oral language; child evaluation; social studies; and activities for oral language, physical education, art, reading readiness, arithmetic, and science.
