Camp, Janet; And Others
This is number four in a series of resource manuals consisting of 11 sequenced curriculum guides developed by the Demonstration and Research Center for Early Education (DARCEE) for use in early childhood education programs. Emphasis is placed on the development of sensory, abstracting and mediating, and response skills. The projected order of the units is: (1) All About Me, (2) Plants, (3) Autumn, (4) Home and Family, (5) Winter, (6) Forest Animals, (7) Neighborhood and Community, (8) Farm Animals, (9) Spring, (10) Transportation, (11) Farm Crops. Each unit is intended to build upon skills developed in preceding ones. The fourth unit, "Home and Family," is primarily a social studies unit focusing on characteristics of families, pets, homes, and objects found in homes. The suggested time for the unit is three weeks. Instructional activities are presented side by side with basic skills to be developed. A list of instructional materials and their sources is given. The appendix includes action-songs, poems, and patterns for teacher-made materials. (MS)
